Celebrate Apprenticeships in Engineering in Fife

Tuesday 17 November 2015

Fife College celebrates the success of their young Foundation Apprentice Engineers

The Foundation Apprenticeship programme take a young person through early elements of the Modern Apprenticeship in Engineering whilst they are still at school.  In the first year of this programme, around 30 young people completed their first year and will return to complete year 2, which they hope to culminate with a 10 day placement in industry.

Could your business give one of these excellent young engineers a placement in 2016? If your company cannot commit to taking a young person on placement, perhaps you would consider working with Fife College to offer a project placement in an engineering workshop on campus.

If your company could help us grow this programme and develop the work-based learning model for young engineering talent in Fife then please come along to a breakfast workshop at Fife College’s Rosyth Campus on Friday 11 December at 8.30am in Room G22 to learn more about how you can play a part in developing future talent in Fife, in support of a vibrant engineering sector.

John Penman, Chair for the Fife Engineering Consortium and Graeme Ramsay, Modern Apprentice Manager, Babcock Rosyth will also be attending.

To book your attendance, please email Hazel Thomson at hazelthomson@fife.ac.uk

This programme is also supported by Skills Development Scotland
