At Eildon we are committed to providing work experience opportunities to young people in the Borders. Our apprenticeship scheme allows you to study for a recognised qualification while gaining on the job skills and experience.
In Corporate Services we currently have two staff members employed through the modern apprenticeship scheme. Emma started in November 2016, and is working towards her SVQ 3 in Business & Administration. Ainsley started in October 2014 and has completed her SVQ 3 in Business & Administration and is now in her second year of study for an HNC in Administration & IT.
“When I left school a few years ago I never knew what I wanted to do career wise but I really enjoyed Business Management in my final years. So when I was offered the modern apprenticeship I was very pleased as I got to study what I enjoyed, earn money and gain experience in a working environment. The SVQ is great as it is on the job training which encourages me to be organised and responsible for my own work load.” – Emma
Modern apprenticeships allow you to learn on the job, develop work experience and gain an industry recognised qualification – all while earning a wage. As a living wage employer we are committed to paying all employees a living wage – and this includes our Modern Apprentices.
As an apprentice you will receive mentoring and support from more experienced members of staff who will help you to develop your skills and confidence in the workplace. You will be encouraged to be creative and feed in new ideas and fresh ways of thinking.
