Cogent is the Sector Skills Council (SSC) for the Chemicals, Pharmaceuticals, Nuclear, Oil and Gas, Petroleum and Polymer Industries.

The Signmaking sector in Scotland is a major contributor to the advertising and information industry. Signs dominate every street name, road and motorway, airport, railway station, high street, retail park and public utilities. Modern signage, illuminated from within, delivers messages above retail outlets or corporate offices in bright crisp colours.

The latest signs are the most modern method of visual communication and are an easy and very cost effective way of getting information.

Cogent has developed a Modern Apprenticeship in Signmaking at two different levels to support the skills needs of the sector in Scotland.
