Foundation Apprenticeships in Fife
Fife College and Fife Council are working in partnership to ensure that Fife Secondary school pupils benefit from a fantastic, full range of Foundation Apprenticeships.
By giving young people earlier exposure to the world of work, we’re helping them develop the skills, experience, and knowledge they’ll need when they leave school.
For young people it’s the chance 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.
Foundation Apprenticeships are now recognised by all Colleges and Universities and can be used to gain access to Higher Education including degree pathways along with other SQA Higher qualifications or often without any other SQA Higher qualifications.
