Promoting Modern Apprenticeships within the tourism industry

At Skills Development Scotland (SDS) it’s our job to encourage and help employers to create a skilled workforce that’s ready to face the future.  If you want to improve productivity, morale, staff retention and quality of service, then a Modern Apprenticeship could be for you. 

 

Modern Apprenticeships are a proven way to build a better workforce and if you run or own a small company, apprenticeships are for you too.  Rachel Polley who is employed by Slug and Lettuce Stonegate Pub Company is one of the 37,000 Modern Apprentices to have thrived in work-based learning.  Rachel’s Modern Apprenticeship is supporting her to develop the skills she needs as a deputy manager within the tourism sector.   

 

'I'm now encouraging colleagues to go along the Modern Apprenticeship route, because you get an industry-recognised qualification as well as lots of practical experience,' she says

 

Over 14,000 businesses are already involved across Scotland.  With a range of new apprenticeships now available, there’s never been a better time to get involved.

You can advertise your vacancies for free on apprenticeships.scot and receive free one-to-one support. With over 40,000 visitors this month, it's a great way to connect with a pool of untapped talent.
