At Alford Academy we are offering Foundation Apprenticeships to our senior pupils at level 4,5 and 6. Foundation Apprenticeships are designed to enhance the learning experience with a work placement which is so valuable for young people.
More information on Foundation Apprenticeships will be shared with pupils and parents in February before course choice forms are issued for next year however a parent information session can be viewed below:
Skills Development Scotland and National Parents Forum for Scotland are arranging a session on Foundation Apprenticeships for parents and carers on Tuesday 14th December from 7pm-8pm.
This session gives the opportunity to find out about Foundation Apprenticeships including who they’re for, how they work and their benefits. During this one hour session we’ll talk through the value and equivalency of the qualification in terms of SCQF levels and UCAS points. We’ll also share pupil journeys and how Foundation Apprenticeships helped them progress onto a job such as a Modern or Graduate Apprenticeship, college or university. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions at the end.
