The Foundation Apprenticeships are at the same level of learning as a Higher (SCQF level 6) and will take a pupil two years to complete.

The successful applicant for this role will have broad teaching experience to include recent and relevant knowledge of early learning and childcare. Ideally the candidate will have worked with secondary aged pupils in a relevant setting. In addition you will be required to deliver a National Progression Award (NPA) Social Services (Children and Young People) during year one – working in partnership with the early years team from the Scottish training provider ‘Training for Care’ who will be responsible for the SVQ2 Social Services (Children and Young People) element of the course during the second year.
