What do I need to apply?

There are no formal entry requirements for the one-year Modern Apprenticeship. For the two-year Modern Apprenticeship programme, you must have a Higher in a business-related subject such as English, Mathematics, Social Sciences, Economics, Business Management and/or Administration.

For both the one- and two-year programmes, you must also be able to show us evidence in your application/interview of the following skills:

  • a good level of written and verbal communication skills
  • be able to use Microsoft Office including Outlook, Excel, and Word
  • an understanding of how to be customer-focused
  • be capable of planning your day and prioritising tasks and activities

Our Modern Apprentices are valuable members of our teams. As part of your apprenticeship, we will work with you to develop employability skills, and give you the opportunity to demonstrate these throughout your placement. You may also have the opportunity to apply for other roles within SQA once you have completed your apprenticeship.
