This course has now taken place.

Recent changes to apprenticeships through the introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy, additional apprenticeship schemes, and increasing support from the Scottish Government have made this an opportune time to implement new and expand on current apprenticeship programmes in your organisation.

Join us for our Delivering Apprenticeships in Scotland course and learn how apprenticeships can benefit your organisation. You will hear from a variety of experts from across different sectors, learning how to design, implement, and manage apprenticeships.

Our speakers will provide you with the right advice and tactics to tack on any challenges that arise through your apprenticeship development journey. You’ll receive guidance on current policy and government aims and gain the confidence to excel in setting your own apprenticeship schemes. Learn how to reach out to a diverse pool of candidates, resource funding, and how to integrate apprentices smoothly into your workplace culture to ensure engagement, motivation, and overall success.
