St Mungo’s High School is working in partnership with Skills Development Scotland and local employers and Forth Valley College to ensure our senior students have the opportunity to study Foundation Apprenticeships as one of their subject choices.
We are also keen to support our students who wish to study an apprenticeship via the Modern Apprentice and Graduate Apprentice pathways after they leave school.
The Apprenticeship Family
An apprenticeship is a real job where you learn, gain experience and get paid. You’re an employee with a contract of employment and entitled to holiday leave. By the end of an apprenticeship, you’ll have the right skills and knowledge needed for your chosen career.
It can take between one and 6 years to complete an apprenticeship depending on which one you choose, what level it is and your previous experience. It’s funded from contributions made by the government and your employer.
