About the apprenticeship.png


MP Skills are also offering the below Scottish Modern Apprenticeships. In Scotland, there are more than 70 different Modern Apprenticeship Frameworks and they are all designed to deliver a training package around a minimum standard of competence defined by employers through Sector Skills Councils (SSCs). All Modern Apprenticeships contain the same 3 basic criteria: Scottish Vocation Qualification (SVQ), Core Skills and Industry Training. The following SVQs are available:

  • SCQF Level 5 Plant Operations

  • SCQF Level 5 Process Operations

  • SCQF Level 6 Weighbridge Operations


How does it all work?

MP Skills will provide the SVQ and Core Skills. The employer will need to provide industry training which MP Skills can help you with. Please let us know if you require industry training for your apprentice.
