Skills Development Scotland Modern Apprenticeship (MA) programmes offer individuals and employers, a package of Vocational Training designed to meet the demands of today’s land-based industries.
A combination of specialist ‘on the job’ training and high quality college based learning ensures our Modern Apprentices gain the skills and knowledge they need to succeed.
The MA programme is a partnership between the apprentice, the employer and SRUC.
The courses are run from three of our campuses (Barony, Elmwood and Oatridge), and cover a wide variety of subjects, from agriculture through to hospitality.
SRUC’s MA programmes are an exciting and practical way for apprentices to gain hands-on industry skills and qualifications while at the same time offering employers a cost effective package of training to meet the demand for a skilled and motivated workforce.
SRUC’s Commercial Business Team design specialist bespoke training packages to meet the requirements of businesses and Local Authorities.
SRUC also offer a full range of land-based Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQ) and industry endorsed training courses.
