Skills Development Scotland Individual Learning Accounts (ILA)

ILA Funding

Many  of the part-time courses at the City of Glasgow College are eligible for funding from Skills Development Scotland.   It is a Scottish Government scheme that helps you pay for learning that you can do at a time, place, pace and in a way to suit you.  It’s for people who have an income of £25,000 a year or less, or who are on benefits.

Please call 0800 917 8000 for more information or visit My World of Work website.

If you are 16 or over and living in Scotland, you could get £200 towards the cost of learning with a learner account from ILA Scotland.

Additional criteria to be applied to applicants as of 1 July 2012:

  • must not hold a UK degree (or overseas equivalent)
  • must not be undertaking any form of full-time or part-time secondary, further or higher education
  • must not be participating on any National Training Programme (Modern Apprenticeships, Get Ready for Work or Training for Work).

These additional eligibility criteria signal a strengthened commitment to provide greatest support to those most in need – those who are low paid and who have a low skills base.

All account applications and account renewals received on or after 1 July 2012 will be assessed under these new additional criteria.
