Foundation apprenticeships are a fantastic opportunity for pupils to gain work placed learning experience. 

Meldrum Academy supports 2 models of delivery of foundation apprenticeships. These models are Aberdeenshire councils model (delivered in school as an option block with a work based placement) and a NESCOL model (delivered at College with a work based placement). The information below shows what you will study and what outcomes you will achieve if successful.
