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.

Where can a Modern Apprenticeship take you?
Ethnic Minority Communities Encouraged To Take Up Apprenticeships
Partnership launched during Scottish Apprenticeship Week to increase participation
A NEW partnership aimed at encouraging more ethnic minority groups to undertake Modern Apprenticeships has been launched during Scottish Apprenticeship Week.
Skills Development Scotland (SDS) and BEMIS Scotland have joined forces in a bid to raise awareness of Modern Apprenticeships (MAs) among ethnic minority communities and increase their participation in the programme.
Damien Yeates, Chief Executive of SDS, said:
Scotland’s population is made up of people from a vast number of ethnic minority communities and we want to ensure the Modern Apprenticeship programme is reflective of this diverse culture.
We are delighted to embark on a partnership with BEMIS Scotland to raise awareness among ethnic minority communities of the benefits of Modern Apprenticeships and to ensure equal access to the programme for all.
As well as working with key ethnic minority organisations, we will host seminars and work closely with training providers to realise our ambition of increasing the number of people from ethnic minority communities undertaking apprenticeships.
The partnership was launched during Scottish Apprenticeship Week, which runs from 18 to 22 May and highlights the benefits apprenticeships bring to employers, individuals and the economy.
SDS is working with colleges, local authorities and employers including Scottish Gas, Microsoft and Dawnfresh on a number of events that are taking place this week to promote apprenticeships.
BEMIS Scotland CEO Dr. Rami Ousta added:
The Modern Apprenticeship programme is valued by apprentices as well as by employers across Scotland as it offers new pathways into wider employment opportunities and helps build employability skills and knowledge for young people while in paid employment.
It is crucial that all of Scotland’s people are aware of the benefits of the programme and have the opportunity to undertake an apprenticeship.
That is why BEMIS Scotland welcomed a partnership with SDS. We look forward to working together to ensure ethnic minority communities feel empowered to undertake a Modern Apprenticeship and fulfil their potential through this training programme.
