Modern Apprenticeships – The Scottish Government achieved its target to create 26,000 new Modern Apprenticeship (MA) places in 2016-17. It was the latest step towards the ambition of having 30,000 apprentices a year by 2020. The overall objective is to create the better-skilled and motivated workforce the country needs to grow its economy.

On the eve of Scottish Apprenticeship Week, this event will give employers and parents all they need to know about the benefits to apprentices and employers.


Speaker: Ian Murray, Lead Officer for Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) Fife, Fife Council

Ian Murray became responsible for managing Fife Council’s Apprenticeship programme in 2004. In addition he has just taken on the role of managing the Foundation Apprenticeship introduced in April 2017. From managing these programmes he’s gain a substantial amount of experience in how Apprenticeships work, the benefits to employers, what support is available for recruitment and what financial support can be made available.


Ian also has personal experience of apprenticeships - having begun his working life as an apprentice upholsterer with James Thomson & Son, Kirkcaldy, on leaving school in 1976. After completing that he spent another eight years with the company before joining Kirkcaldy District Council in 1988 as a vocational trainer - teaching young people the art of upholstery.

Ian subsequently gained SVQs in management and leadership – his “second apprenticeship” – before adding qualifications at degree level which enabled promotion to Lead Officer in 1997.
