To thrive and grow, Scottish businesses need employees with the right skills

A Modern Apprenticeship helps employers to develop their workforce by training new staff, and upskilling existing employees. For individuals, an MA is a job which lets them earn a wage and gain an industry-recognised qualification.

Adopt an Apprentice (AAA)

The Adopt an Apprentice scheme allows businesses to benefit from a skilled trainee, whilst also receiving a financial incentive. This can help cover wage and recruitment costs of taking on a Modern Apprentice who has been made redundant from another employer.

For employers willing to take on a redundant Modern Apprentice a one-off financial incentive of £2,000 is available.

Employers from the oil and gas industry will receive a one-off financial incentive payment of £5,000.

Download the scheme guidelines for more information:

The application form, which must be completed by the Training Provider, should be completed electronically:

To discuss the Adopt an Apprentice scheme further, Training Providers should contact their Skills Investment Advisor or call the employer helpline on 0800 783 6000.
