Flexible Workforce Development Fund

Flexible Workforce Development Fund

Employers looking to improve the skills of their staff have a new opportunity to access training in partnership with colleges thanks to the launch of a £10million fund.

The Flexible Workforce Development Fund will be available to organisations across the private, public and third sectors who are subject to the UK Government's Apprenticeship Levy.

Eligible employers can access the fund, which is administered by the Scottish Funding Council on behalf of the Scottish Government, by getting in touch with their local college.

Improving productivity

The one-year pilot fund will focus on the up-skilling and re-skilling of existing employees of any age, with individual organisations able to apply for up to £10,000.


The Flexible Workforce Development Fund is administered by the Scottish Funding Council.  Employers can find out more on the Scottish Funding Council website or contact their local college for more information.
