GET A JOB. GET PAID. GET QUALIFIED.
Becoming a Modern Apprentice (MA) is a great way to kick start your career. How else could you learn on the job, receive invaluable practical experience and work towards an industry recognised qualification whilst getting paid?
Our Modern Apprenticeship programme is a paid, work-based training programme aimed at young people aged between 16 and 24 years of age. The MA programme takes up to eighteen months and will lead to an industry approved qualification.
If you are enthusiastic, hard-working and committed to the challenge of work and study for up to eighteen months then this could be the opportunity for you. To qualify you must meet the aforementioned age criteria and not have previously undertaken an SVQ in Business and Administration or Creative and Digital Media. Formal qualifications are not essential, but a good standard of literacy and numeracy is required. Most importantly you should have good communication skills, be able to work as part of a team, strong attention to detail and a willingness to learn.
Skills Development Scotland is committed to promoting equality of opportunity and we are working towards our employee profile reflecting that of the Scottish working population. We therefore welcome applications from groups currently underrepresented, including disabled people or those with additional support needs, care leavers and those from an ethnic and cultural minority background.
SDS will be flexible on age criteria for applicants who are care leavers or disabled.
