Learn every day, in every way

Variety is key in all our apprenticeship programmes. You'll learn for two, three, or four years, depending on which programme you're joining. Most importantly: you'll get practical skills that you'll use on-site, whilst gaining all the knowledge you need to obtain a recognised, national qualification.

You'll learn through a combination of:

  • Learning in the classroom: you'll study for the national qualifications that are specific to your programme and field (e.g. an SCQF Level 6, HNC in Engineering)
  • Learning in the workshop
  • On-site learning: you'll put everything you learn into real-world practice


“I chose an apprenticeship with Diageo to build a long-term career in a well-established company and Diageo is well-known as being a great company to work for. I knew I didn’t want to go back to college or university and by taking this role as an apprentice I am able to learn whilst gaining qualifications.”

So, come as you are and be you. Bring your passion, ideas, and ambitions, and we'll give you the support and training you need to reach your fullest potential.

Connect and create

As you develop your professional know-how, you’ll get to know and work with talented people from all around the globe, each with their own passions and experiences. You'll build a wide network of people that’ll support you now and throughout your career.

Together with your colleagues, you'll innovate, break new ground, and create a more inclusive and sustainable tomorrow.

See results

By the end of the programme, you’ll have grown both personally and professionally, with lots to celebrate and be proud of.

You’ll be excited to see the result of your efforts when our premium drinks are shipped off to be enjoyed all around the globe. It’s very empowering and rewarding to be able to say: ‘I did that!’.
