What's Next? FA Progression Pathways

FA Progression Pathways

Today marks an important milestone for our class of 2018-20 who will use their Foundation Apprenticeship to begin the next chapter of their progression pathway towards positive futures in life, learning and work.


Whether that pathway involves a Modern Apprenticeship, progression to further study or building a career within the world of work, the knowledge, skills and confidence gained as part of a Foundation Apprenticeship course will prove invaluable to future success.


DYW Fife, Fife College and Fife Council wish all our Foundation Apprenticeship students every success for their next step along their respective progression pathway.
