Vocational Qualifications

As part of the business planning process for 2017, Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce have decided to wind down our involvement in delivering Modern Apprenticeships/Vocational Qualifications on behalf of Skills Development Scotland (SDS) at the end of August 2017.

The development of a skilled workforce remains core to our programme for our members.  We will continue to work with Scottish Government and SDS to deliver this through our support for programmes such as DYWNE, Commercial Training and other projects. 

George Brand, Vocational Qualifications Team Lead, is working with all of our existing candidates to ensure successful completion of their qualification before his retirement at the end of August.

As of April 1 2017 the Chamber are not taking on any new candidates. 

Alternative Providers

There are a number of Chamber member organisations who provide Modern Apprenticeships/Vocational Qualification assessor services.

The companies who provide the qualifications are listed below along with the person you should contact with your enquiry.

If you have any general questions then please contact George Brand on 01224 343914.
