Learning in the workplace

At New College Lanarkshire (NCL) we offer twelve Foundation Apprenticeship frameworks which include Creative and Digital Media, Engineering, IT, Science and Social Services. 

These programmes have been developed by Skills Development Scotland (SDS) to help young people gain valuable, real-world work experience and access work-based learning while still at school.
