Learning providers should visit the Modern Apprenticeships page.

An apprentice is someone who:

  • is employed
  • is learning on-the-job
  • earns a wage from day one
  • works towards an industry-recognised qualification.

There are a range of social service apprenticeships. They are a good way of starting a career but there are also opportunities for experienced workers looking to progress.

Apprenticeships generally include a primary qualification, an SVQ, and extra learning opportunities in core skills or career skills depending on the SCQF level. Here are the available apprenticeships. You can read more about them on our career pathways website or visit our main apprenticeship page.
