The Modern Apprenticeship in Scotland has been meeting the needs of employers since January 2001 with the inclusion of a Level 2 in September 2007
The introduction of the Technical and Professional Apprenticeship with Career Skills will further enhance the programs for the construction industry.
An apprenticeship in construction follows a pattern of vocational training to meet the requirements of a ConstructionSkills approved framework. This enables them to develop skills and knowledge which they can then demonstrate and evidence in a real construction environment.
The Modern (Level 2 and Level 3), Technical (Level 4) and Professional (Level 5) Apprenticeship has been developed to help meet the skill priorities of the industry and for Scotland by:
- continuing to provide qualifications required by employers to help their business grow
- by providing a flexible entry route to attract applicants from under-represented groups
- by including literacy, numeracy, problem solving and employability skills to develop the confidence of apprentices to take them throughout their working life which are incorporated within the framework
- meeting the requirements of the Modern, Technical and Professional Apprenticeship Framework
- meeting the Scottish Government’s Making Training Better Consultation in late 2011.
Aims and objectives of this framework
The aims of the Modern, Technical and Professional Apprenticeship frameworks are to attract, retain and develop talent into a range of occupations for Construction, providing progression at all levels in order to ensure that the industry has a well-trained productive workforce.
The Construction Modern Apprenticeships for Scotland can be viewed and down-loaded from Skills development Scotland.
