Modern Apprenticeships

As part of the Council's Youth Employment actions, we aim to provide quality learning opportunities through the Modern Apprenticeship (MA) Programme.  The Programme is open to young people (aged 16-24 years) who are able and willing to achieve an SCQF Level 6/7 vocational qualification.

The MA Programme provides young people with the opportunity to learn new skills, achieve a nationally recognised qualification and enables them to earn as they learn within a range of vocational areas. 

The Council has offered MAs in:

  • Business & Administration
  • Customer Service
  • Life Science (School Technician)
  • IT
  • Vehicle Mechanic
  • Accountancy Technician
  • Electrical Engineer
  • Procurement
  • Waste Management
  • Paralegal Services
  • Childcare

The MA programme is a practical way to make the most of young people's potential, through a structured learning process aimed at equipping them to do a job, whilst providing the opportunity to obtain a work based qualification. The programme is funded by Inverclyde Council and Skills Development Scotland, through a variety of training providers.

Over the years, the high success rate of MAs gaining full time employment is evidence of the quality of training being provided.

Recruitment for the MA programme takes place at certain points in the year, and specific vacancies will be advertised via the MyJobScotland website (see the External Links on this page).

We will also seek to promote vacancies through the Council website, local partners and press.

For details see the Information Sheet on this page. If you have any questions having read the information, please telephone the Workforce Development Team on 01475 715555.
