Foundation Apprenticeships are qualifications available to pupils going into S5 and S6 in Scotland. They provide a ‘higher’ based on undertaking work based learning in the safety of school. There is no exam so it’s a good opportunity to gain a good level qualification along with support and guidance throughout. 

At the Virtual Learning Academy we can work with pupils in their school or remotely. Contact us to find out how your school or child can get involved. We can help pupils achieve one of the following foundation apprenticeships.
