Foundation Apprenticeships (FA) at Moray College UHI

FAs are work based learning opportunities for young people at school to work in industry alongside other forms of traditional learning such as Highers. The aim is to give young people experience of the world of work, by introducing them to industry much earlier and opening up their career choices.

We are offering the following frameworks for the 2019/20 session:

  • Business Skills
  • Creative and Digital Media
  • Engineering
  • Food & Drink Technologies
  • IT: Hardware/System Support
  • Social Services  - Children & Young People
  • Social Services and Healthcare
What are the benefits of doing a Foundation Apprenticeship?
  • A number of universities across Scotland now recognise the FA as part of their entry criteria
  • Gain SVQ qualifications while in your senior phase at school
  • Gain experience of working in your chosen career by undertaking a workplace placement
