Employability Fund

Employability Fund

We are Training & Employment

South Lanarkshire College works with Skills Development Scotland (SDS) to deliver a range of programmes through Employability Fund.

With a strong focus on work experience, the Employability Fund lets us respond to the different needs of each individual, while adapting to employers demands locally.

Employability Fund activity’s aim is to help unemployed people build skills and confidence employers are looking for.


All courses are focused on helping you get into employment with SQA accredited qualifications delivered by South Lanarkshire College lecturers.

The Training & Employment team has experienced dedicated staff that will provide employability sessions, one to one support and a work placement to help you gain the experience and references you need.
