Foundation Apprenticeship FAQ 2021

On the run up to the course choice period for our senior phase pupils across East Lothian, East Lothian Works is holding a variety of virtual events covering a range of opportunities that school pupils and school leavers have access to. We recently delivered a live virtual event on foundation apprenticeships where we welcomed along pupils, parents, carers and teachers to gain further information about the foundation apprenticeship programmes and what they involve.

For those who were unable to attend our live event or still have some questions you need answers to we hope the attached FAQ will provide you with required information.
