It will be responsible for providing advice and making recommendations on the guiding principles, operational policy, systems and structures supporting apprenticeships in Scotland.

The Board will consist of four groups as follows:

A Group Board Includes senior business representation responsible for providing advice and making recommendations on the guiding principles, operational policy, systems and structures supporting apprenticeships in Scotland.

Employer Engagement Group Includes employer and business organisations and a representative of the Developing the Young Workforce National Group. This group’s specific role is to listen, engage and communicate and distil information from employers on matters affecting Apprenticeships in Scotland.

Employer Equalities Group Incorporates representatives from business with a focus on equality and diversity. The group’s remit is to address under-representation in apprenticeships; supporting improved access and participation.

Frameworks and Standards Group A technical group which will ensure that supporting structures are developed and maintained, and contribute to an effective apprenticeship system in Scotland.

The set up of the Advisory Board comes at an important time for apprenticeships with the introduction of the levy from April 2017. SAAB will play a key role in advising on the use and fulfilment of the levy in Scotland which meets industry demand.

Skills Development Scotland (SDS), the national skills agency, is responsible for managing the funding and promotion of Apprenticeships on behalf of Scottish Government. The SDS Board is responsible for facilitating employer leadership of apprenticeships through the SAAB. SDS is working with the university sector to set up the Scottish Institute for Work-Based Learning, which has a remit to promote the value of work-based learning in the Scottish education and training system.

Through its research and development activities, the Institute will support the work of, and be informed by, the Advisory Board.
