Accessible Fife: Modern Apprenticeships for Young People with Disabilities and Health Conditions

Archived news: published on Friday 11 Nov 2016 by Fife Council

Accessible Fife’s goal is to identify 12 apprenticeship opportunities across Fife and match young people with disabilities and health issues to these posts.   We have already secured a number of apprenticeship positions in administration and rural skills; and we have a short window of opportunity to extend this offer further afield.   

Ideally, we would like to advertise apprenticeship positions by the end of November 2016, recruit young people to start the pre-apprenticeship academy training by January 2017, leading to job selection and entry by April 2017. 

We are committed to working closely with our employers by:

·         Sourcing and securing partial funding to support the establishment of the apprenticeship position

·         Advertising, interviewing and recruiting suitable candidates for selection by the employer

·         Delivering pre-apprenticeship academy training tailored to suit the needs of the business and the young person

·         Providing on-going training, support and guidance throughout the apprenticeship programme


Accessible Fife is a partnership between Fife Council Employability and Employer Engagement, Fife College, DWP, Health and Social Care Partnership and Third Sector Provision. 

Accessible Fife has been funded by Skills Development Scotland to improve uptake of apprenticeships by young people in Fife who have health problems and/or disabilities.
