Countdown is on to Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2018

23 February 2018 

Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2018 will take place from 5-9 March and the ambition is to make this campaign the best yet, following a hugely successful event in 2017 with participation reaching an all-time high.                 

The theme for 2018 is 'Apprenticeships are the Business', recognising the crucial role they play in providing a skilled workforce now and in the future.

Events and activities involving employers, apprentices, colleges, universities, local authorities and training providers will take place across the country to celebrate the success of individuals and businesses.

Skills Development Scotland (SDS) organises Scottish Apprenticeship Week to encourage many more employers to take on apprentices.

Around 12,000 organisations already employ Modern Apprentices, from family firms to multi-nationals across every type of business.

With SDS working with industry to support a target of 28,000 new Modern Apprenticeship starts this year, as well as around 2,600 Foundation Apprenticeships and approximately 900 Graduate Apprenticeships - it's never been more important to promote the apprenticeship family.
