West College Scotland’s School’s Department is delighted to be working in partnership with Skills Development Scotland to deliver 6 exciting Foundations Apprenticeships for senior phase pupils in our local schools.
A Foundation Apprenticeship will take a pupil two years to complete, and is the same level of learning as a Higher (SCQF level 6). As pupils are working towards their qualification they will spend time out of school at college and with a local employer.
West College Scotland is offering the following Foundation Apprenticeships across our three campuses for August 2017.
