Defining an Apprenticeship Consultation
27 November 2017
The Scottish Apprenticeship Advisory Board's Defining an
Apprenticeship was launched yesterday (20th November), in order to
provide a clear and agreed definition of what an apprenticeship is
in Scotland's skills system.
The full family of apprenticeships - Foundation, Modern and
Graduate Level - is enabling greater flexibility and choice than
ever before and providing learning and progression pathways that
people can enter into at different life stages. Our consultation
sets out the key principles we view as critical to the integrity of
these apprenticeships in Scotland and the development of a system
that works for employers and apprentices.
We need as much valuable feedback as possible to ensure we reach
a collective view on what an apprenticeship is and that it meets
future need. Therefore we would be grateful if you could please
take the opportunity to contribute your views to the consultation
by midnight on 20th December, which will be used to inform our
policy recommendations to Scottish Government.
You can complete the consultation online here.

We look forward to sharing the feedback with you in the coming
