SDS Individual Training Account (ITA)

What is an ITA?

Individual Training Accounts (ITA) have replaced the Individual Learning Accounts (ILA) scheme.

Skills Development Scotland (SDS) have stated that the available 3,700 places for the year 2019-20 have all been allocated.

SDS and the Scottish Government are now exploring options to maximise the impact of the scheme, within the available budget. At this time, it's not clear whether further ITA funding will be available later in the year.

If any further announcement is made by SDS, details will be provided here.

If you are eligible, you can get up to £200 towards the cost of a training course with an ITA from Skills Development Scotland.

You could use this money to build the skills you need for a job. Or get some training to take your career to the next level. Whatever you want to do, there is a wide range of ITA approved courses on offer.

And because it's not a loan you don't have to pay it back.
