Scottish Apprenticeship Week is the annual campaign to show that apprenticeships work for businesses, individuals and the economy.
This week, there will be events across Scotland highlighting why Apprenticeships are the Business.
Make the Promise
Your organisation can show support for the campaign by commiting to taking on an Apprentice in the next year.
Fill in our Apprenticeship Employer Promise and upload your company’s logo, and we'll feature your company on our campaign website.
The Employer's Guides to Inclusive Recruitment
More support to help employers take on apprentices from diverse backgrounds has been pledged as part of Scottish Apprenticeship Week.
SDS is launching a range of digital guides designed to support employers to attract and recruit apprentices from a range of backgrounds.
The Employer’s Guides to Inclusive Recruitment, available on apprenticeships.scot, was developed through the Scottish Apprenticeship Advisory Board (SAAB), the employer-led body which gives a strong industry voice to the development of work-based learning in Scotland. The work supports the Equality Action Plan for Apprenticeships, a five-year strategy developed by Skills Development Scotland (SDS) and partners to improve diversity in apprenticeships.
Get the Toolkit and take part today
Employers, apprentices, businesses, industry, schools, colleges, universities, councils and politicians are backing the campaign.
Our campaign toolkit includes social media graphics and information to help you get behind the campaign and show your support for apprenticeships.
More Foundation and Graduate Apprenticeships
More than 3500 new apprenticeship opportunities will help boost the economy this year.
Skills Development Scotland is working with colleges and universities to support around 2600 Foundation Apprenticeships and approximately 900 Graduate Apprenticeships.
