Skills Development Scotland (SDS) has launched its Equalities Action Plan for Modern Apprenticeships in Scotland.
The five-year plan sets out action SDS and partner organisations will take to address the low numbers of young people from ethnic minority backgrounds, young disabled people and care leavers entering Modern Apprenticeships.
Apprenticeship areas where there are gender imbalances, for example females in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) related apprenticeships will also be tackled by the plan.
