SLC Celebrates Scottish Apprenticeship Week

SLC has planned a week of activity to celebrate Scottish Apprenticeship Week

Apprenticeships Work, that’s the message from SLC as it celebrates Scottish Apprenticeship Week.

The organisation has activities planned throughout this week (7-11 March) to showcase the achievements of its apprentices and inspire the apprentices of the future.

On Monday, the Leadership Team will meet virtually with some of the current cohort of modern and graduate apprentices, to discuss their experience at SLC and hear their ideas about developing the apprenticeship programme.

On Wednesday, Paula Sussex, CEO, will go back to school and talk to S4 pupils at Springburn Academy in the outskirts of Glasgow, about apprenticeship opportunities within SLC. She will be joined by graduate apprentices who will share their experiences and answer any questions the students have about exploring an apprenticeship.

And to end the week, Kaukab Stewart, MSP for Glasgow Kelvin will visit the Glasgow Office, on Friday, to meet with CIO, Stephen Campbell, and apprentices Hazel Fulton, Aidan McCrae, Cairn Foster and Jamie Law. This will be an opportunity for her to find out more about SLC’s approach to apprenticeships, and how they benefit people at different stages of their careers.

In addition, the organisation has also been nominated for a Scottish Apprenticeship Week Award in the Large Employer, Promoting Diversity category. The award recognises the commitment of large organisations to supporting diversity through apprenticeships and the winner will be announced at a virtual award ceremony on Wednesday night.
