What we do

We are a national organisation driving cultural change and creating demand for work-based learning in Scotland. The Centre was founded by Skills Development Scotland and will work in partnership, to influence policy, practice and perception of work-based learning. The Centre aligns its work with the Scottish Apprenticeship Advisory Board (SAAB) and leads on policy and research advice to the SAAB.   Work-based learning is important to help our businesses succeed, to bridge the gap between education and industry, and to prepare our young people for work. Working with education and industry, we will identify and evidence good practice and design and develop new approaches in work-based learning.
