Graduate Apprenticeships

Graduate Apprenticeships (GA’s) play a key role in delivering the skills employers need to thrive in the face of economic challenges and rapidly evolving trends in the world of work. GA’s are delivered as a partnership between employers and universities where the apprentice is in paid employment for the duration of their studies.

The investment we make in GA’s creates real value for individuals, enabling them to develop the necessary skills, knowledge and competence required by employers whilst in a working environment.

In addition to providing a unique learning experience, GA’s are also an important way for companies to attract and retain top talent. By offering apprenticeships, companies can invest in the development of their employees and ensure that they have the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in the modern workforce.

Looking to the future, GA’s are well placed to support the green skills revolution needed for Scotland’s future net zero economy. We look forward to the continued success of the program delivering excellent outcomes for students and their employers, contributing to a highly skilled and productive workforce for Scotland.
