Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2021

We’re supporting Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2021 to demonstrate the value apprenticeships bring to individuals, employers and construction.

Co-ordinated by Skills Development Scotland, this year’s theme is Business Backing Talent, aiming to demonstrate how businesses benefit when they back talent through apprenticeships.
