Still time to apply to Flexible Workforce Development Fund

Do you require staff training? Are you looking to retrain staff? Are you an SME employer or Apprenticeship Levy payer based in Dumfries & Galloway?

If so, there is still time to apply for the Flexible Workforce Development Fund (FWDF) which is available to all Scottish employers, including small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) within the private, public and third sector

How much is available?
• Levy-paying employers can access up to £15,000 in 2020/21
• SMEs will be able to access up to £5,000 training in 2020/21
• The fund can be used to completely cover training or to partially cover training at a higher cost
• The fund allows employers to address priority skills gaps and invest in their workforce through training and personal development.

Training can be tailored to meet your organisation’s needs with assistance from Dumfries and Galloway College.

The fund does not support the provision of industry qualifications or training where there is a statutory obligation required by law. Employers can submit one application only to the fund within the application period – this includes SMEs.
