Apprenticeships offer young people the chance of gaining the necessary skills for a worthwhile career

Apprenticeships have been making a comeback in recent years offering young people the opportunity of gaining the skills necessary to build a worthwhile career. With around 140 manufacturing and engineering businesses in Dumfries & Galloway, there are apprenticeship opportunities available in a wide range of disciplines such as mechanical engineering, design and manufacture. Typically, a 4-year apprenticeship is an ideal platform for a successful career. Apprentices’ learn and develop the knowledge, practical skills and capabilities to work within this skilled environment by shadowing and working alongside qualified personnel, whilst undertaking assessments through a college of further education. On completion of the Modern Apprenticeship, apprentices will be qualified to SVQ Level 3 and a minimum of HNC. Current apprenticeship opportunities are published here.
