Modern Apprenticeships

Modern Apprenticeships involve both off-the-job training at Tullos Training and in-company or workplace assessment programmes.  They are run by qualified instructors who regularly monitor students progress during training.

On successful completion of training you will be in possession of your SVQ certificates and where appropriate you would also gain an educational qualification such as NC/HNC and a Modern Apprenticeship Certificate.

Tullos Training helps bring applicants and employers together as part of an ongoing recruitment process. For the applicant this involves a short test at the Centre on general knowledge, mechanical comprehension and, most importantly, for those entering the electrical and electronics industries a colour vision check. Entry qualifications vary from company to company but in most cases National 4 or above in Maths, Science, English and Craft related subjects are sought by employers.
