National Training Programmes

This includes participating in a National Training Programme (NTP) where a young person may be a trainee and in receipt of a training allowance, or an employee receiving a wage. NTPs are delivered by Skills development Scotland (SDS) and include:

  • Modern Apprenticeships - apprentices are employed and undertaking an S/NVQ at levels 2-5 following an approved Modern Apprenticeship framework.
  • Training for Work (TfW) - training programme for adults who have been unemployed for 3 months or more. It provides vocational training in a range of occupational sectors to help people back into sustained employment.
  • Get Ready for Work (GRfW) - targeted at young people who, without tailored work based support, are unable to make the transition to sustained employment opportunities.

You can access more information on National Training Programmes on the Skills Development Scotland's website.
