Land Based Courses Funding
Flexible Training Opportunities gives Scottish businesses with up to 100 employees the opportunity to apply for up to £5,000 towards employee training costs.
Enhancing employees' skills will bring real benefits to employers, including improved productivity and a stronger more confident workforce.
Funding is available for up to 10 employees per business and the money is not a loan so the employer does not have to pay it back. Skills Development Scotland will refund up to 50% of each episode of employee training up to a maximum of £500 for each training episode. For example, if an episode of training costs £1,200 excluding VAT, we will refund £500. If it costs £300 excluding VAT, we will refund £150.
Types of training we will fund:
- qualifications, including individual units
- learning based on National Occupational Standards
- industry recognised qualifications
- supervisory and management training
- taster sessions.
