Rural Scotland

Rural businesses encompass a wide variety of industries including traditional ones such as farming, forestry and fishing but other industries also have an important role to play in rural communities including tourism, food and drink, health & social care (including childcare) creative industries, energy, manufacturing and others.

Apprenticeships and other forms of in-work training will be central in attracting new talent, helping workers upskill, and in turn boosting productivity.

Rural Scotland toolkit explains the different types of apprenticeships and support available and will help you make informed decisions to find the right solution for your business and gain the most from your team.
