What is a Graduate Apprenticeship?

It is a Scottish Government priority to increase workforce skills through graduate-level qualifications such as Graduate Apprenticeships. Skills Development Scotland has developed Graduate Apprenticeships, in partnership with industry and the education sector, to provide work-based learning opportunities and a new way into degree-level study for individuals who are currently employed, or who want to go straight into work.

Graduate Apprentices work for their employer whilst studying and developing their skills at the University of Stirling. It means that work undertaken for the employer counts towards a Graduate Apprentice's qualification.
