Apprenticeships in the Scottish Library and Information Sector

Category: News

Out colleagues at CILIP recently undertook a process to approve new Apprenticeship standards for the library and information sector. More information is available about this here and you can view the Apprenticeship standard here.

As the process and delivery model for Apprenticeships in Scotland are different, we at CILIPS are currently assessing whether there is enough demand for us to undertake a similar piece of work here. To help us do this, we have created a short survey and would be grateful if any Heads of services who might be in a position to offer Apprenticeships in the future could fill it out. It should not take long to complete and the answers you give will not be viewed as a commitment to offer apprenticeship positions – the survey is simply just to give us a general idea of demand in Scotland.

It would be hoped that, should there be demand for a similar standard here, then it would be pitched at a similar lever (SCQF level 6/7), but this would be assessed.
