SDS Individual Training Accounts (ITAs)

Skills Development Scotland have announced that ITAs are closed to new applicants for this financial year (until 31 March 2019).

The early closure of the scheme is due to higher than anticipated demand. The decision has been taken by SDS and is outwith the control of Midlothian Council and the other training providers.
