Foundation Apprenticeships at City of Glasgow College

Reducing youth unemployment and supporting young people is not only a priority, but a responsibility for colleges across Scotland. We aim to support young people to build the necessary skills they'll need to be successful after leaving school.

Through our Industry Academy model, we want to support all young people in not only getting, but keeping, a sustainable job.

Foundation Apprenticeships are work-based learning opportunities for secondary school pupils in S4 and S5. Pupils will spend time at college or with a local employer, and complete the Foundation Apprenticeship alongside their other subjects, like National 5s and Highers.

The qualifications are linked to the six key sectors of the Scottish economy, so while young people are getting industry experience that will help develop their career, Foundation Apprenticeships also support businesses in building a talent pipeline and developing their workforce for the future.
