For Employers

Add new skills to your workforce

Foundation Apprentices are senior secondary school pupils who’ve chosen to get ahead in their career. They’ll spend time with employers like you, gaining relevant experience in the world of work. It’s good for young people, and good for the future of your business too.

New ideas — young people are great with technology, enthusiastic, flexible, and more responsive to change.

New skills — the training they’ll get equips them with up-to-date knowledge of practices in your industry.

Your future — as your workforce ages you need to identify and nurture future talent.


Create stronger links with education

By working with schools and Argyll College UHI, you can make sure that young people leaving education have the skills and experience they need for your industry. Taking on a Foundation Apprentice helps you to identify the young people with right skills for your organisation. And because Foundation Apprenticeships have been developed in partnership with Sector Skills Councils, the skills and training are highly relevant to your industry.
