  • Email us at
  • Call us on 01595 771210
  • Visit us at our UHI Shetland Train Shetland office our address is - John Goodlad Centre, Port Arthur, Scalloway, ZE1 0UN.

Once we receive your completed form, we will invite you to our office for an informal chat about your chosen career sectors and the available training programmes. Your application form will then be sent to prospective employers, within the career sectors chosen, who have told us that they will accept applications. If you are already working and your employer would support you undertaking a vocational qualification, you may be able to get apprenticeship funding. 

You can also approach potential employers yourself in the first instance to see if they would be interested in taking you on. Trial periods are increasingly popular for employers and potential apprentices so you can ask employers about this directly before committing to the apprenticeship. If you would like more career advice, but feel a Modern Apprenticeship is possibly not for you, please contact Skills Development Scotland.

We look forward to hearing from you.
