This week is Scottish Apprenticeship Week. Whether you’re looking to improve your long-term talent pipeline or address skills gaps, the Scottish apprenticeship programme offers flexible options to suit your business needs. Employers can use apprenticeships to attract new talent or upskill existing staff.

Skills Development Scotland have created a practical guide for employers on cyber security and technology apprenticeships. The toolkit will guide you through the different types of training available for new recruits and for members of your existing workforce. It will also explain some practical considerations relating to wages, your responsibilities as an employer, funding for training, and other important points to think about. It also highlights options for attracting new talent into your organisation, including through work experience placements, apprenticeships and internships.

There are many qualifications in cyber security available in Scotland. You can study an NPA in Cyber Security at school, apply for an apprenticeship, or study a master’s degree at University. Skills Development Scotland and Digital World have produced a guide to highlight the range of qualifications available for individuals wanting to pursue a career in Cyber Security.

Find out how you can take part in Scottish Apprentice Week, 7-11 March 2022.
