Foundation Apprenticeships

Breaking down barriers between school and work

Foundation Apprenticeships

Foundation Apprenticeships offer pupils in S5 and S6 in Scotland the opportunity to attain qualifications while engaging in work-based learning within the school environment. These apprenticeships present a pathway to a ‘higher’ qualification without the need for exams, providing valuable support and guidance throughout the learning process.

At the Highland Learning Academy, we facilitate Foundation Apprenticeships for pupils across the Highlands and Islands, whether they are based in schools or are learning remotely. Contact us to explore how your school or child can participate in these enriching programmes.
