Foundation Apprenticeships

Foundation Apprenticeships allow learners to complete some elements of a Modern Apprenticeship whilst still at school. These qualifications have been developed by Skills Development Scotland to offer learners an alternative pathway into their chosen future careers.

These innovative frameworks allow learners the opportunity to gain a qualification at Level 6 whilst staying at school - their time is spent between school, college and the workplace.

As with our full college portfolio, we are always looking for employers to offer opportunities to our Foundation Apprentices, whether this is through providing professional speakers, assisting in industry challenges or providing placements. At present we are offering Foundation Apprenticeships in the following areas:

Social Services (Children & Young People)

Social Services and Healthcare (Inveralmond Only)

Scientific Technologies

IT: Software Development

Creative & Digital Media

Business Skills
