We’re supporting Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2021, co-ordinated by Skills Development Scotland. Scottish Apprenticeships support the 'Young Person's Guarantee' which was introduced by Scottish Government in 2020 to ensure everyone aged between 16 and 24 has the opportunity of work, education or training.
The theme for #ScotAppWeek21 is 'Business Backing Talent', with activity that aims to demonstrate how businesses benefit when they back talent through apprenticeships, as well as the value apprenticeships bring to individuals and the economy.
Businesses have adapted to challenging times. Employers and learning providers have innovated so apprentices can learn, achieve and progress, they have developed new and safe ways to recruit in their commitment to backing talent. Recognising the impact the pandemic has had on industry and employment, Scottish Apprenticeship Week will highlight the vital role apprenticeships play in supporting businesses and the economy now and for the future.
Whilst the Scottish Apprenticeship Week is co-ordinated by SDS, its continued success is down to those who support it and now, more than ever, it will play a vital role in highlighting the value work-based learning brings to Scotland’s people, business and economy so we urge you to get involved . You can do this by sharing your own case studies, good-news stories and opportunities for young people to access Apprenticeships across social media and on your websites.
