Courses, Apprenticeships And Funding For Personal Trainers

Modern Apprenticeships

FTScotland’s funded/part-funded Modern Apprenticeship Programme helps employers to develop their workforce by training both new and existing employees. As an employee you will not only gain an industry-recognised qualification but also earn a wage at the same time.

Those undertaking a Modern Apprenticeship can build valuable work experience from day one and gain industry recognised qualifications. As an apprentice, you will develop skills and expertise for your current and future positions of employment. Our Modern Apprenticeships are available at two different levels, equivalent to higher national levels.


  • Aged 16-24 years old
  • Hold a contract of employment (zero hours/casual contracts are accepted)
  • Not currently studying an associated qualification at college or university. Learners can be taken on as long as they are not studying a sport/recreation, health & fitness qualification.
  • Do not hold a degree in an associated qualification.

Some of our Modern Apprenticeship learners have gone on to secure full-time employment and also develop their careers into more senior positions from the completion of their Modern Apprenticeship Programme.
