Degree apprenticeships: Devolved administrations – Scotland

Degree Apprenticeships Toolkit

In Scotland, Degree Apprenticeships are part of the Modern Apprenticeship framework and are known as Graduate Level Apprenticeships.

  • Individuals who participate in the scheme are able to access the same learning opportunities as those who go down the traditional route of direct entry into college or university.
  • Apprentices can progress to the highest level of professional qualifications with a range of entry and exit points from a Higher National Diploma (SCQF level 8)) to a Master’s degree (SCQF level 11).
  • The apprenticeships are part funded by participating employers, which means they are only available to their employees.

More information:

They will be available from 2016 and will focus initially on ICT/Digital, Civil Engineering and Engineering.
