Modern Apprenticeships

Fife Centre for Equalities is a partner provider in Accessible Fife, a Pre-Apprenticeship Academy and is hosting a Business and Administration Apprenticeship in a Communications Role. This is a fantastic opportunity for young people (16-24yr olds) with health conditions and disabilities in Fife,  please note applications are now closed for the first cohort.

To find out more information about Accessible Fife, or if you require support to complete the application, please call 01592 583142 and ask to speak to a member of staff about Accessible Fife.

Accessible Fife has been funded by Skills Development Scotland to improve uptake of apprenticeships by young people in Fife who have long-term health conditions and/or disabilities. Spaces on the Academy are reserved for people who have a physical or mental impairment that has a ‘substantial’ and ‘long-term’ negative effect on their ability to do normal daily activities, as defined by the Equality Act 2010.

Internships

FCE, along with Youth 1st, offered placements in 2016 to international interns in partnership with Rural Skills Scotland Ltd. FCE hosted two German interns from the Integration durch Austausch over eight weeks. Melanie and Andreas have been involved in several of FCE’s activities, including the Festival of Fife (see this short video of Fèill Fhìobha 2016).
