Programme Outline: A Modern Apprenticeship is all about learning while you work – and earning at the same time. A Modern Apprenticeship is a job like any other. But as well as getting paid, apprentices gain loads of practical work experience as part of a highly structured training programme. They work towards an industry recognised qualification accredited by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA). Some MA qualifications are even at the same level as a Scottish university degree. Graduate Level Apprenticeships see you getting a job, getting paid and getting a degree at the same time

Instead of thinking about how things might happen in the real world, you’ll find out. You’ll be part of the industry from day one – solving problems on real projects.

Everything you learn at work, and in the lecture hall, counts towards your qualification. You could be studying for a Diploma of Higher Education, HND, Honours degree or even a Masters.

Plus, employers help us design Graduate Level Apprenticeships. So you can be sure the qualification and skills you get at the end are what you actually need for work.
