New funding for in-house training in Scotland with Flexibile Training Opportunities

Flexible Training Opportunities gives businesses in Scotland with under 50 employees the opportunity to apply for up to £5,000 towards employee training costs.

Launched by Skills Development Scotland (SDS) and supported by the European Social Fund, it aims to help small businesses become more resilient and to boost productivity and success.

Funding is available for up to 10 employees per business and the money is not a loan so there's no need to pay it back.

SDS will refund up to 50% of each episode of employee training up to a maximum of £500 per employee.

Visit the Skills Development Scotland website for more details.
