Scotland’s biggest parents evening – Wednesday 6 March 2019
Developing the Young Workforce North East (DYWNE) would like to invite you to the biggest parents evening in Scotland on March 6, 2019. The event is aimed at parents and carers, as key influencers of young people, to highlight the types and benefits of apprenticeships. 
There are over 37,000 people in Scotland working as apprentices in industries ranging from financial services to engineering and from digital technologies to health and social care.
Work based learning through apprenticeship means developing skills on the job, working with an employer with structured training and assessment along the way.
Come along and find out about the 3 types of Scottish Apprenticeship:
  • Foundation Apprenticeships (FAs)
With a FA pupils learn in the workplace, developing industry specific skills and an industry-recognised qualification, alongside their other subject choices. They spend part of the school week out of the classroom with a learning provider and in a workplace. On completion they will achieve a qualification at the same level of learning as a Higher (SCQF 6)
  • Modern Apprenticeships (MAs)
MAs are jobs open to  anyone aged 16 or over. For young people they mean working, learning and earning.
There are more than 680 different types of apprenticeships covering hundreds of different jobs.
  • Graduate Apprenticeships (GAs)
GAs are a new way to study up a Masters Degree level while in a job. Most of the learning happens at the employers workplace. Gas offer valuable work-based learning in some of Scotland’s most exciting industries.
