About our Modern Apprenticeship Programme

What is a Modern Apprenticeship?
If you are already working in a childcare setting, the Modern Apprenticeship (MA) is an excellent opportunity for you to undertake the qualification you need while continuing to work and earn a wage.  The qualification is the Social Services Children and Young People SVQ Level 3 Award (at SCQF Level 7) which upon completion, will enable you to register as a Childcare Practitioner with the Scottish Social Services Council.

Our Modern Apprenticeship programme is funded by Skills Development Scotland and supports those 16 through to 25+ years of age and who are employed in the childcare sector, to attain the relevant Core Skills enabling them to sustain their employment, develop their knowledge, skills and enhance their income earning potential.

How long does the Modern Apprenticeship take?
Our Modern Apprenticeship programme can take up to 18 months to complete.
