Next generation leather makers.
We formed The Scottish Leather Group Academy in 2012 with a mission to provide lifelong learning for everyone who works here. The Academy has welcomed hundreds of employees to achieve qualifications in their chosen field, and we’re proud to be here for the next generation of leather makers, managers, technical teams and more.
Since 2012, over 60 apprentices have joined our Engineering and Leather Manufacturing programmes and many are still with us today, furthering their careers across the business. Even with the challenges of 2020, our work never stops. We’ve trained over 100 managers, supervisors and team leaders with a new online Management and Leadership Development programme, supported and delivered by West College Scotland.
The Group won Best Large Employer and Apprentice Champion at the Scottish Textiles Modern Apprenticeship Awards, as well as Scottish Apprentice of the Year 2019.
The applications for 2021 have now closed and will reopen early in 2022.
