Training via Flexible Workforce Development Fund (FWDF)
The Flexible Workforce Development Fund is a gateway to free staff training using Government money for Scottish-based UK Apprenticeship Levy Payers and SME businesses.
Take advantage of this Government funding to potentially upskill your staff for free and grow your business.
Take on an apprentice
A Modern Apprenticeship is a great way to tailor training and upskill your staff to develop the capability to meet the needs of your business. Modern Apprentices can be either new employees or existing members of staff, and the funding available makes it a cost-effective way to develop your staff, boost productivity and grow your business.
Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQs)
Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQs) set out the skills, knowledge and attitudes which can be directly applied and assessed within the workplace. They're work-based learning, emphasising day-to-day capability to build the competence for your staff to do well in their jobs.
We offer SVQs across a number of areas, giving your staff the chance to acquire the skills they need.
Your staff can get the skills they need by learning in their own time as and when they're able to study with our open learning courses.
