Apprenticeships at Borders College


Foundation Apprenticeship
Foundation Apprenticeships help young people gain valuable, real-world work experience and access work-based learning while they’re still at school and it’s a chance for them to get a head start on their careers by gaining an industry-recognised qualification, work on real projects and broaden their career options when they leave school. For employers, it’s the chance to attract highly motivated and committed young people who are willing to learn, identify young people who are right for their business and ensure their organisation has people with the skills they need. See links on the left for detailed Foundation Apprenticeships information.

Modern Apprenticeship
Modern Apprenticeships are work-based training opportunities for new or existing employees; supporting Scotland’s ambition to secure a trained, productive and enthusiastic workforce for the future. They offer the chance for individuals to work in paid jobs while undertaking workplace training to gain enhanced skills and recognised Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQ). All apprentices need to be in employment throughout the duration of their programme.  Modern apprenticeships are open to anyone aged 16 and over. Funding contributions towards the cost of training may be available, depending on age, sector and framework selected.

Graduate Apprenticeship
Graduate Level Apprenticeships provide work-based learning opportunities up to Master’s degree level for employees. They have been created in partnership with industry and the further and higher education sector. The apprenticeships combine academic knowledge with skills development to enable participants to become more effective and productive in the workplace. This is an area Borders College is looking to develop in the future in conjunction with advisory boards. If you would like to discuss these opportunities, please contact us.
