Document Abstract

A modern look at apprenticeships, IN Holyrood, No 409 24 Sep 2018, pp34-35

Reports on the Skills and Apprenticeships in Scotland event hosted by the Scottish Government. Describes how the number of people going to university has risen dramatically and highlights the potential risk of losing a diverse education model. Argues that apprenticeships can be invaluable routes into the workforce for school leavers, and provides some examples of apprenticeships that include or lead to higher education degrees. Suggests that greater involvement of parents could help break stigmas surrounding apprenticeships. Concludes that the next step in promoting apprenticeships involves lifting barriers and stigmas, and raising awareness of the benefits.
