SQA's one-year Modern Apprenticeship programme

We are seeking new applicants to join our one-year Modern Apprenticeship in Business Administration, and will recruit six young people to join us in January 2022. Successful candidates will work from home initially but will join their colleagues in Glasgow or Dalkeith once Scottish Government public health guidance confirms it is safe to do so.

SQA’s one-year Modern Apprenticeship gives young people the chance to develop valuable work-based skills and experience from day one. Apprentices will gain valuable experience over the 12-month work placement while also completing a Scottish Vocational Qualification in Business and Administration.

The programme is open to young people aged between 16 and 19, and up to 29 for any disabled and/or care-experienced applicants. There are no formal entry requirements for the one-year Modern Apprenticeship programme.

Applications close on Sunday 7 November 2021.
