Whether it’s hiring someone new or developing an existing employee, apprenticeships can help provide the skills your business needs.

Designed by industry, for industry, and delivered in a way that is flexible to meet your business needs, apprenticeships enable you to strengthen and upskill your existing staff and recruit and develop new talent.

Here at Argyll College we can support employers to recruit and train Modern Apprentices in the following fields, and access the Apprenticeship Employer Grant:


Boatbuilding & Repair

Business Skills



A new Apprenticeship Employer Grant has been made available to further support employers when taking on Modern or Graduate Apprentices within their business.
