Modern Apprenticeships & Engineering Courses


Modern apprenticeships & engineering courses in Renfrewshire & throughout Scotland

For almost 50 years Paisley & Johnstone Training Group Limited has delivered apprenticeship training in various disciplines of Engineering to a large host of companies within the industry. In fact some of the Company Directors or Operational Managers we deal with today, who started their apprenticeship with P & J in the 1960’s, 70’s, & 80’s are now sending their apprentices to us –a huge compliment to the quality and commitment of our trainers and assessors. 

 In 1995 the introduction of the "Modern Apprenticeship Framework" brought the addition of the further education element to the programme, which provided even more development potential for apprentices. SDS (Skills Development Scotland) can help with grant funding towards the costs of the apprenticeship training. Our apprenticeship training pathways are approved through SEMTA (Sector Skills Council) and our awarding bodies are EAL and SQA.
