This week we celebrate Scottish Apprenticeship Week (SAW) and for many individuals, it is the beginning of their career path

Every year, Fife College celebrate Scottish Apprenticeship Week (SAW). It is important to us that we shape the future of all individuals that study with us, for both our Foundation and Modern Apprentices. Now more than ever, studying a national qualification is so important to get into the industry you want to start a future in.

What is Scottish Apprenticeship Week?

This is when we encourage and celebrate young individuals wishing to explore the opportunities that their chosen career entails. For Erin (Modern Apprentice) and Sam (Foundation Apprentice) it has opened up fantastic opportunities for them as they have been able to take on real life work experience and study at Fife College for a national qualification.  This will have given them the confidence to proceed further in their studies and careers.

What is the difference between MA and FA?

Foundation Apprenticeship (FA) is for anyone in 5th or 6th year at secondary school that want to kick-start their future career whilst still at school and gain the skills and knowledge but also give them work experience with a local employer.

Modern Apprenticeship’s (MA) offer anyone 16+ the opportunity to train for a nationally recognised qualification whilst being paid in employment helping them develop skills and strengthen their knowledge.

Why does it matter to me?
