A Bespoke Apprenticeship is:
A job + work-based training = Bespoke Apprenticeship
Becoming an apprentice is a great way to kick start any career. You will learn on the job, receive invaluable practical experience and work towards an industry-recognised vocational qualification - whilst getting paid.
A Bespoke Apprenticeship works in almost exactly the same way as a Modern Apprenticeship. It is an apprenticeship designed by the Council to meet the needs of a specific role that is not covered within an existing Modern Apprenticeship framework.
Therefore, the apprenticeship framework will be designed in-house to meet the needs of a specific role within the Council. Such apprenticeship typically last 2 years but can be tailored to meet the needs of the role/qualification sought. Qualifications may be college led or follow a professional route. Examples of Bespoke Apprenticeships already in existence within the Council include an Enterprise Apprenticeship and Building Services and Public Safety Apprenticeship.
There are a broad range of frameworks available to adapt. For the most up to date listing, and for details of the requirements under each framework, look on the Skills Development Scotland website:
