You take on the employee and we will provide the training!

Modern Apprenticeships are a way to fund training for your NEW or EXISTING employees.

The Virtual Learning Academy are a recognised National Training Provider delivering funded and part funded programmes for Skills Development Scotland. We work with organisations to deliver the training for new or existing employees.

You take on the employee and we deliver the qualification to ensure they are trained to do the job they are employed to do.
