You can choose a Foundation Apprenticeship as one of your subject selections in S5 or S6. It’s a qualification, over 1 or 2 years, that lets you gain work experience in one of Scotland’s 12 growth industries while you’re still at school. And it fits in with your other senior subjects.
You spend one day or two half days a week working with a local employer, learning the skills that you will need in your future career, wherever that takes you.
You might be working in a creative design studio delivering new content to a design brief with the Creative and Digital Media Foundation Apprenticeship. Or, you could be surveying sites in construction as part of your Civil Engineering FA.
You’ll also be developing communication, team-work and self-management skills, giving you a head start for your future.
