North East Scotland College is approved by Skills Development Scotland to deliver Foundation Apprenticeships and Modern Apprenticeships.
A Modern Apprenticeship provides anyone aged 16 or over the opportunity to achieve industry recognised qualifications whilst working. They come in all shapes and sizes, and typically last from 2-4 years. Individuals must be employed to enrol on a Modern Apprenticeship programme.
Foundation Apprenticeships are for Senior Phase pupils. Starting in S5, this two-year programme combines course work and extended work experience to lead to industry-recognised qualification at SCQF Level 6 (the same level as a Higher).
