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 practise high industry standards. 

This can help develop existing talent within your workforce that is just waiting to be discovered and developed – so you don't need to look outside your organisation for skills your organisation is lacking. 

Other benefits of apprenticeships to you and your business can include: 

  • Increased productivity and efficiency
  • Excellent service to your customers
  • Increased profits
  • Improved staff retention
  • Improved ability to attract good staff
  • An engaged and motivated workforce
