What is special about this course?
Modern Apprenticeships offer anyone aged over 16 paid employment combined with the opportunity to train for jobs across a wide range of sectors. They are an exciting way of gaining skills and qualifications that will help to start a career without having to study full time.
All the Modern Apprenticeship frameworks are developed by the appropriate sector skills council in consultation with their industry. Modern Apprenticeship frameworks can also be used as the basis for training more established employees.
Off the job learning usually takes place through colleges or training providers.
Here at Moray College UHI we offer a range of Modern Apprenticeships across a range of sectors and work closely with a number of employers within the Highlands and Islands areas.
