S5W-22522: Monica Lennon (Central Scotland)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 3 April 2019

To ask the Scottish Government which schools in each local authority area have offered students an opportunity to carry out a foundation apprenticeship in civil engineering in each of the last three years, and what the take-up rate was in each school.

Answered by: Jamie Hepburn 23 April 2019

Since the Foundation Apprenticeship Programme started in 2016, 227 pupils have started the Civil Engineering Foundation Apprenticeship framework.

Skills Development Scotland does not report which schools offered the Civil Engineering framework but rather how many pupils commenced the framework at the beginning of the academic year.
