Cothrom are delighted to be working with Comhairle nan Eilean Siar on the delivery of Foundation Apprenticeships within the Western Isles. We have been delivering Foundation Apprenticeships in Sgoil Lionacleit since 2017, supporting young people within school and within the workplace to achieve these excellent qualifications. The qualifications are relevant to those looking to move into work or into further education or training after school. Cothrom will be available at roadshow events to talk to young people about how the courses are delivered and what the benefits are. We will be working with local employers in Uist and Benbecula to support placements. If any students, parents or employers would like more details we are happy to discuss.
