Skills for Work

We facilitate a range of skills programmes to help businesses in Angus improve long-term staffing objectives or address skills gaps. 

These programmes respond to the needs of employers and local labour markets. They provide young people with real-life work experience.

Modern Apprenticeships (MAs)

Modern Apprenticeships allow your new or existing employees to work towards an approved qualification while in employment. They have been designed by employers for employers. Each Modern Apprenticeship is tailored to meet individual business needs.

Apprentice employees get flexible training and a qualification designed for your industry. We provide on-the-job training with an industry-approved Scottish Vocational Qualification.  

There are many different reasons why your business should take on an apprentice, including:

  • Get an influx of fresh ideas
  • Help shape the training of the young people of the future
  • Invest in young talent or upskill current employees
  • Improve productivity, reduce staff costs and turnover
