Our stories

Group of workers

We were one of the pioneers of Graduate Apprenticeships when they were launched in 2017. It built on our proud history of being at the forefront of work-based learning in Scotland. Established in 1821, we’ve been at the heart of upskilling people to take on industry challenges for over 200 years.

Our employer partners range from Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) to large multinational organisations. We’ve partnered with companies from a wide range of sectors in the Scottish economy to help them develop their workforce, attract new talent and retain key staff.

Our industry faces daily challenges, and we need a highly trained and motivated workforce to improve productivity and maintain quality on our projects. The Graduate Apprenticeship model offers us a way to grow and sustain our business, develop a talented workforce, and prevent future skills gaps.
