Programmes in Scotland


Apprenticeships needn’t mean a risk to your investment or a compromise on quality. Especially when they’re delivered by the leading force in technology-enabled, tutor-supported learning.

Whether you’re looking to train new or current employees, we currently offer two end-to-end graduate apprenticeship programmes for private, public and third-sector organisations in Scotland.

The Open University offers Graduate Apprenticeships in Cyber Security to employers in Scotland. The apprenticeships are funded by the Scottish Funding Council and are available to new and existing employees 16 years of age and over.

Your organisation can utilise these programmes to plug crucial skills gaps and ensure you have the talent to future-proof your organisation.

Through tutor-supported online learning, apprentices can flex learning around their work schedule, reducing time away from the workplace. Skills learnt as they progress through the programme are immediately embedded into the workplace, giving an almost instant return on investment.

With The Open University your organisation will benefit from:

  • Scale - We offer programmes across the UK while providing local experience. Apprentices will receive a consistent learning experience, even across multiple locations.
  • Flexibility and value - We are flexible in our delivery methods. Apprentices can fit their studies around organisational priorities and do not need to travel to follow lectures.
  • Quality and expertise - We have a stellar reputation for educational excellence, with both practice tutors and academic tutors having considerable industry experience. Apprentices will learn and instantly apply their skills to the workplace.

Our experienced account management team can help employers work out the best way to get up and running with apprenticeships. Get in touch or call 0300 303 0122.

Employers are also assigned a dedicated Apprenticeship Programme Delivery Manager that supports the employer to deliver apprenticeship programmes that meet their business needs and provides regular management information.
