SVC Recommendation 8: Modern Apprenticeships
The Scottish Government and Skills Development Scotland should consider actively promoting Modern Apprenticeships to Early Service Leavers and to their potential employers.
Scottish Government update:
This is continuing but has largely been superseded by later initiatives. In 2017, we published “Seven things you need to know about Scottish Apprenticeships”. Scottish Apprenticeship week (SAW) is held annually and is used to showcase what is on offer across the employment spectrum in Scotland to both employers and those interested in Apprenticeships.
A dedicated webpage for veterans was launched on My World of Work (My WoW) during SAW 2018. Skills Development Scotland and the Careers Transition Partnership are also promoting Modern and Graduate Apprenticeships to Early Service Leavers, veterans and their families.
SVC evaluation of status:
Implemented, but work should continue
