Scottish Apprenticeship Week is a nationwide celebration of apprenticeships. The week, co-ordinated by Scotland’s skills agency Skills Development Scotland takes place from 4 - 8 March 2024. It's a time when everyone can promote the benefits of work-based learning to people, employers and Scotland.

Scottish Apprenticeship Week shines a spotlight on the benefits that work-based learning brings to: 

  • people of all ages and backgrounds 

  • employers of all sizes 

  • Scotland’s economy 

Apprenticeships create the skills every generation needs and every employer wants. This year’s campaign shows that apprenticeships give people high-quality opportunities. This supports them to achieve their full potential.
