Event description

Description

Skills Development Scotland, in partnership with Developing the Young Workforce, West Lothian College and Edinburgh College, would like to invite employers to attend our Foundation Apprenticeship Breakfast Event.

Foundation Apprenticeships provide new, work-based learning opportunities for learners in their senior phase of secondary education. Employers gain early access to future talent and benefit from fresh new ideas and perspective.

Foundation Apprenticeships have been developed for 12 of Scotland's growth industries and a significant number of the frameworks relate to STEM industries. The aim of our event is to inspire local STEM employers to get involved in this exciting programme, and to inform employers about the range of FA frameworks relevant to the industries in which they operate. These frameworks include:

  • Accounting
  • Business Skills
  • Civil Engineering
  • Creative Digital Media
  • Engineering
  • Food & Drink Technologies
  • IT Software Development/Hardware
  • Scientific Technologies

The event will be held in the North Pod within the Edinburgh Business School. Arrival is from 8am and breakfast/refreshments will be provided. Please email any specific dietary requirements to anna.ramsay@dyw-wl.com by Friday 20th September.

The event will start at 8.30am and delegates will:

  • Receive an overview of Foundation Apprenticeships and frameworks
  • Find out more about pathways and progression routes
  • Hear from employers and young people about their experiences
  • Have an opportunity to ask questions

Free parking is available in Car Parks H & J and the event will finish no later than 10.30am.

However, for those delegates who would be interested in receiving a tour of the new GRID building, there will be an opportunity to do so after the event. More information about the building can be found here: https://www.hw.ac.uk/uk/edinburgh/grid.htm

We look forward to welcoming you to this informative event!
