Individual Learning Account (ILA) Funded Courses


Skills Development Scotland’s (SDS) Individual Learning Accounts (ILA) are being replaced by a new system in October 2017, called Individual Training Accounts (ITA). More details on the eligibility criteria for the new ITA scheme will be published on the SDS website in due course.

In the meantime, if you want to book a course with the College using your currently open ILA account, then you must book the course by 30th June 2017 at the very latest. Your course start date must be no later than 30th September 2017 and the course can continue beyond that date.

In the meantime, the details of the transition arrangements between the ILA scheme and the ITA scheme and Frequently Asked Questions are available on the SDS website as follows:
