Scottish Funding Council - Flexible Workforce Development Fund
The purpose of the FWDF is to provide employers with flexible workforce development training opportunities to support inclusive economic growth through up-skilling or re-skilling of employees.
The Fund is in addition to apprenticeship support- access to which is available to all employers in Scotland- and Individual Training Accounts (ITAs), which provide eligible individuals with the opportunity to undertake learning opportunities to develop their skills for employment.
The FWDF may be particularly beneficial in addressing skills gaps and training needs of the older workforce.
