Individual Training Accounts
Learners in Scotland can now apply for up to £200 per year of funding towards skills and learning development with an Individual Training Account (ITA). This new scheme, launched in October, is designed to replace ILAs and aims to make it easier for job hunters and lower paid workers to access qualifications and additional training.
How Does It Work?
ITA Scotland is an SDS scheme which helps you to pay for learning that you can do at a time, place, pace and in a way to suit you. If you are over 16 and living in Scotland, and earn under £22,000 per year, you could get up to £200 towards the cost of learning new skills.
