Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2022

Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2022

We’re supporting Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2022 to show the value of Scottish Apprenticeships to people, business and the economy.

This year’s theme is Apprenticeships Work, with the aim to highlight how apprenticeships are providing the skills employers need now and for the future.

We spoke to Tom McCleneghan, a Site Agent at Morrisons Construction, who kick started his career in civil engineering with an apprenticeship. Watch his video below to find out more about why he thinks apprenticeships are the best way to launch a career.

Developed in partnership with employers, apprenticeships continue to adapt to respond to industry needs.

Scottish Apprenticeships work by providing thousands of opportunities to get a job, get paid and get qualified across Scotland every year.

The Scottish Government has promised to increase the number of apprenticeships in Scotland. It is providing opportunities and support for people and businesses through apprenticeships to help strengthen the economy.

Scottish Apprenticeships are a crucial part of the Young Person’s Guarantee, providing thousands of opportunities for young people affected by the pandemic. Apprenticeships can help to drive equity of opportunity and give employers the tools and support to be inclusive in recruitment.

Scottish Apprenticeship Week is a time to show that apprenticeships provide opportunities that work for everyone.
