Assistance towards CPD costs

By SLAS Spokesperson

Flexible Training Opportunities - run by Skills Development Scotland - gives Scottish businesses with up to 100 employees the opportunity to apply for up to £5,000 towards employee training costs.

On their website ( it says that there is funding available for:

"- Qualifications including individual units
- Masterclasses
- Learning based on National Occupational Standards
- Industry recognised qualifications
- Supervisory and management training
- Workshops
- Taster sessions

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

For example, if an episode of training costs £1200 excluding VAT, we will refund £500. If it costs £300 excluding VAT, we will refund £150.''
