THE cream of Scotland's talented young apprentices and their employers gathered in Edinburgh last week to be honoured for their achievements.

The Scottish Modern Apprenticeship Awards, sponsored by the Daily Record and Sunday Mail, mark the efforts of the many training providers, colleges, employers and employees who are involved in the Modern Apprenticeship scheme.
