Modern Apprenticeship Opportunities

We now have an extensive Modern Apprentice Programme, last year alone we took on 72 Modern Apprenticeships.

Our Modern Apprenticeships will offer the opportunity for those over 16 to gain invaluable industry recognised training and qualifications, while in paid employment.

Modern Apprenticeships (MAs) are a way of gaining skills and qualifications that will help you start or develop a career whilst studying part time.

Examples of recent posts are:

  • Early Years Educator
  • Civil Engineer Technician
  • Creative Digital
  • Creative Cultural Assistant
  • Social Care Assistant
  • Information Technology Technician
  • Community Learning & Development Youth Worker
  • Procurement Assistant
  • Urban Traffic Control Assistant Engineer
  • Cashiers assistant

Modern Apprenticeships can be between 1 to 4 years depending on the level of the apprenticeship and qualifications undertaken.

Studies May include HNC/HND and/or an appropriate level of Scottish Vocational Qualification (SVQ). Many of these posts have a career grade structure that means you will have support to work and study right up to degree level and offer future career progression pathways.

You will also be supported to achieve membership with relevant professional bodies.

We offer MA opportunities in a wide range of jobs across all council service areas:

  • Chief Executive’s Service
  • Children and Families Service
  • City Development
  • Corporate Services
  • Neighbourhood Services

And with partners:

  • Leisure and Culture Dundee
