ITA is funding that’s available from Skills Development Scotland’s Individual Training Accounts (ITA), which can be used as full or part payment towards courses that are available from Hawkhill Training Services.
You could be entitled to £200 worth of funding to build up your skills to get a job, and because it’s not a loan, you don’t need to worry about paying it back!
To ensure Individual Training Accounts meet the needs of learners and the overall aims of the scheme, training providers must demonstrate the quality and outcomes of their courses.
ITA courses are selected and monitored according to the positive outcomes they can offer learners and their career prospects. Individual Training Accounts aim to improve work-related skills and qualifications, with the aim of getting learners the qualifications they need to better their career prospects.
They align to the training definitions set out by the Scottish Government.
All ITA Courses must be in one of the curriculum area’s aligned to the Scottish Governments Labour Market Strategy Plan which includes:
· Early Years and Childcare
· Health and Beauty
· Health and Safety
· Social Care
By increasing the employability of those seeking employment and those who are in low paid work looking for progress, Individual Training Accounts allow employers access to a trained and motivated workforce.
