Skills Development Scotland (SDS) is the national skills body supporting the people and businesses of Scotland to develop and grow.
The following products and services are provided across Scotland, and ready for you to access now!
Individual Learning Account (ILA)
Having the right qualification could be the difference that allows people to get a job or lets them move up or change roles if they’re already in work. An ILA can help you develop necessary skills, by providing up to £200 for training or learning.
Individuals who meet the eligibility criteria for SDS Individual Learning Accounts (ILA) may qualify for £200 a year towards training. And because it’s not a loan, the money doesn’t need to be paid back.
