Funding to help pay training costs

SDS Individual Training Accounts

If you live in Scotland you could be eligible to get up £200 towards the cost of a training course with an SDS Individual Training Account (ITA) from Skills Development Scotland.


You can apply for ITA funding if you are:

– 16 or over
– living in Scotland
– currently in, or actively seeking work
– in receipt of an income of £22,000 a year or less, or are on certain benefits


You will not be eligible to apply for ITA funding if you are currently undertaking any secondary, further or higher education, or are involved in any other SDS-funded programme including the Employability Fund, a Scottish Apprenticeship or Community Jobs Scotland.
