Modern Apprenticeships in Scotland

Although each modern apprenticeship framework is specific to the particular industry, they are all made up of three parts:

  • SVQ Level Two or Three - the occupational SVQs for the sector are the core of every framework.
  • Core Skills - the skills everyone needs to be able to adapt constantly to changing work situations:
         Communication
         Working with others
         Numeracy
         Information technology
         Problem solving
  • Additional Components - these vary from industry to industry but may include additional units from other SVQs and industry specific qualifications such as gas ACS or water by-laws.
