UHI Shetland, in partnership with the Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB), has 16 scholarship places on offer and is inviting expressions of interest.

Launch your career in engineering construction and earn £100 a week with the ECITB Scholarship - a new programme starting in September.


UHI Shetland, in partnership with the Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB), has 16 scholarship places on offer and is inviting expressions of interest.
The scholarships have been developed in recognition of the growing demand for workers with engineering skills. The ECITB scholarship programme will include mechanical and electrical engineering pathways alongside other areas of focus including industrial welding, fabrication, and project controls at levels SCQF 5/6. Learners will get a grounding in core engineering knowledge and skills as well as an understanding of the new technologies, and a foundation in digital skills.
Successful applicants will receive £100 a week to pursue a two-year off the job programme in a craft or technical discipline while they undertake some components of an apprenticeship.  At the end of the scholarship, learners acquire industry standard qualifications as well as relevant site passports and leave with the foundation skills to move into apprenticeships or employment in industry.


UHI Shetland are currently taking notes of interest at present and will send out further details to those interested in due course. If you would like to register your interest in this opportunity, please email: study.shetland@uhi.ac.uk
