What are the benefits?

The SVQ modern apprenticeship programme offers many benefits for both employers and employees – the programme helps employers upskill the team, motivate the team and demonstrate their commitment to staff development.  For the employee, it allows the individual to gain an industry-recognised qualification; it gives the individual encouragement, motivation and confidence. In summary;

  • 01 Giving team members an opportunity to gain an apprenticeship and qualification which is recognised by the industry
  • 02 Enhancing the skills of the workforce and therefore the standards and service within the establishment giving a competitive advantage
  • 03 A motivated and committed workforce who have been given the opportunity to develop their skills and confidence in the workplace
  • 04 Positive PR for the business  

How is the programme funded?

There is no financial commitment required from our employers as we utilise funding from Skills Development Scotland for those who are eligible to take part. All we ask is that your business nominate worthy members of your team and allow us to work with them to achieve their qualification and develop their career.  We do not require any minimum numbers.

How is the apprenticeship achieved?

The SVQ qualification is gained onsite in the workplace and does not take any employee away from their daily duties.

Upon successful completion everyone receives an industry recognised SVQ certificate and a Modern Apprenticeship certificate. It is open to all age groups as long as they have not previously completed it and are not in full time education.
