Graduate Apprenticeship Programme

Are you an enthusiastic and ambitious recent school leaver, interested in working towards a university degree, learning on the job and earning a salary?

Our Graduate Apprenticeship programme delivers this exciting new way for you to gain a Degree and valuable industry experience that will set you apart from your peers.

You study the same subjects as those completing a traditional full-time undergraduate degree and achieve the equivalent level of qualification over a four-year period. The key difference is you will undertake your learning as a mix of classroom and workplace-based training and assessment – whilst engaged in paid employment as a core member of our ScottishPower team.

We provide you with a full-time employment contract whilst you complete your degree, with the opportunity for a permanent role following graduation. Initially, you will complete 1 day per week classroom learning at university, and 4 days per week workplace learning. The balance of office versus lecture time may alter as you progress through your degree.

This programme is a three-way partnership between you, the employer and the university and all our processes will have the learning journey at the heart of the process.

You will receive a starting salary of £18,500 and this will be reviewed annually.
