Apprenticeships are good for business

We offer apprenticeship programmes in everything from Dental Nursing to IT, Business to Engineering and provide state-of-the-art facilities across six campuses in the heart of Scotland.

Our apprenticeship programmes offer various pathways to employment or further education, and along with Modern Apprenticeships we also provide Foundation Apprenticeships for school pupils looking to take their first steps to employment.

Our past apprentices have gone on to achieve great things, and our present ones are positive about their future after expanding their skillset with New College Lanarkshire – just read our case studies below.

We regularly assess the curriculum to ensure that apprentices are getting the training relevant to their work and practice high industry standards. 

As well as benefiting the apprentice, our programmes provide a number of organisational benefits to our partners, including: 

  • Raise your business profile
  • Enhance your reputation in the eyes of the community and customers
  • Transform the life of a young person
  • Increase the employability of a young person
  • Access to young talent, creativity and innovation
  • Exposure to potential future employees, which will save you time in your recruitment process
  • Continue to develop and grow as a business
