Individual Training Accounts- ITA

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.

Sixth Sense Training currently offer a range of short courses to improve business, marketing or IT skills. If you are currently unemployed or learning less than £22000, not in education and currently reside in Scotland, you could meet eligibility criteria.

Popular ITA Courses

  •  Web Development
  •  Leadership and Management
  •  Customer Care for IT 
  • Digital Marketing 
These courses can be completed online, in our training suite or one to one for those requiring additional help.


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. You are eligible if:

  • you are over 16 and living in Scotland
  • Earn under £22,000 per year
  • Not in education or involved in any other SDS funded programme
  • Unemployed and looking to get back into work

You could get up to £200 towards the cost of learning new skills.
