Skills Development Scotland (SDS) has closed the Individual Training Account (ITA) scheme to new applicants with immediate effect.
The early closure of the fund has been due to higher than anticipated demand. As a result, SDS met the target of 18,500 individuals in training ahead of schedule and we will now deliver approximately 22,000 places this year.
SDS commit that anyone who has been confirmed as booked onto a course won’t be disadvantaged. However, those who have applied but haven’t yet been verified and booked on the FIPS system won’t be eligible for funding.
SDS has prepared some FAQs about its decision. Please click the link below for more information:
