Modern Apprenticeships

Modern Apprenticeships offer anyone over the age of 16 the chance to ‘learn while you earn’. They provide paid employment with the opportunity to work towards a recognised qualification that will equip apprentices with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed. Perfect for upskilling in current employment, or as training for new staff.

Funding for individuals

Individual Training Accounts (ITAs) are funded through Skills Development Scotland. They help people develop the skills they need for work. ITAs give learners, who meet the eligibility criteria, up to £200 towards a single training course or training episode per year. And because it is not a loan, the money doesn’t need to be paid back. See the SDS website for information.
