Corporate Parent SCRA has just appointed its 14th care/Hearings-experienced Modern Apprentice. The Modern Apprentice will be based in SCRA’s Grampian Locality.
During the two year programme, the Modern Apprentices undertake an SVQ in Business Administration which is overseen by West Lothian College. In addition, they also work with SCRA’s Participation Officer on multiple engagement initiatives such as the new Hearing room programme, a variety of information streams for young people, and consultations and training.
Jennifer Orren, SCRA’s Participation Officer, who runs the programme said: “We are so pleased to have been able to continue this valuable programme, even during the pandemic. The MA programme runs on a national scale and we have now had MAs in placements throughout Scotland, offering learning and development opportunities as well as work experience. The SVQ they undertake during their placement is a valuable recognised qualification which is highly transferrable and accepted in multiple employment settings.”
