Opportunities for young people

Modern Apprenticeships – a great way to kick start your career.

NSS provides Modern Apprenticeships – where you can learn on the job, receive invaluable practical experience and work towards an industry-recognised vocational qualification – and get paid for it.

A Modern Apprentice is:

  • Someone who is employed
  • Someone who is learning on the job
  • Someone earning a wage from day one
  • Someone working towards an industry-recognised qualification

If you're aged 16-24, your company can get help to pay for your training costs. You can start a Modern Apprenticeship if you've reached the Scottish statutory minimum school leaving age (external link) - for most people, that's 16.
