Inverness College UHi is highlighting the Foundation Apprenticeship in Scientific Technologies.
This is a great opportunity for anyone starting S5 this year who is ready to study at Higher level. For those who love science then this is a great two year course to prepare you for university study or work when you leave S6.
This is a chance to gain real work experience and industry qualifications.
Inverness College UHI is taking applications now. All those interested should speak to their guidance teacher about applying.
Andrew Gatton is an S6 student at Invergordon Academy and is on his second year of the Foundation Apprenticeship in Scientific Technologies. Andrew is currently on his second year placement at Lifescan where he attends every Friday in term time.
"I’m still looking at my options post school but just now I think I’d like to study Physics and I know that this experience will put me in a good position. Lifescan works closely with the education sector so there is a lot of good feedback and advice available to me as to how I can progress. I’ve learned new things while on placement, for instance I’m learning about elective chemistry which is a new experience."
