Graduate apprenticeships

We continued helping businesses grow their own talent as Scotland’s biggest provider of graduate apprenticeships.

In 2020 GCU secured a £5.4 million contract to offer 223 new graduate apprenticeship places to help working people access higher education, and additional funding to create programmes in fields including design and manufacture, business management and quantity surveying.

We built on our relationships with more than 150 employers by developing partnerships with businesses including BAE Systems, McDonald’s, and Network Rail and councils across Scotland.
