Apprenticeships are a great way into employment for many young people. Cothrom offer both Foundation Apprenticeships as well as Modern Apprenticeships.
A Foundation Apprenticeship is taken as a subject while you are still in school. For example, if you choose to study childcare you will receive both tutoring in school as well as work experience as part of your apprenticeship.
Modern Apprenticeships consist of mostly practical experience through employment while also being supported by a tutor to achieve academic requirements. For example, you can undertake an SVQ (Scottish Vocational Qualification) in Business and Administration while working as a receptionist or other office-based job.
Apprenticeships are an excellent way to demonstrate both experience and relevant qualifications to your future employer.
