Scottish Apprenticeship Week stands as a nationwide celebration of apprenticeships, providing an opportunity for everyone to advocate the advantages of work-based learning to individuals, employers, and the broader community.

During Scottish Apprenticeship Week, the spotlight is directed towards the positive impacts of work-based learning on:

  • Individuals of diverse ages and backgrounds
  • Employers, regardless of their size
