March 8, 2022, 16.00 – 17.00

Online Webinar,

This webinar takes place as part of Scottish Apprenticeship Week and will focus on the value of good quality apprenticeships as positive post-school destinations for young people moving directly from school into the world of work.

We will also be joined by two young apprentices to hear about how they value their apprenticeship.

This event will be of particular interest to teachers and school-based CAS.
