ILA is getting a refresh over the summer. This means that the existing scheme will be closed to new applications for a few months.
The revised scheme will come into effect in October and will be called an Individual Training Account (ITA). If you’re eligible then you’ll still be entitled to funding of up to £200 per year towards a course. The differences are that you’ll only be able to do one course in any learner year, and that courses will be geared towards helping you with getting a job or progressing in your career.
For further information see SDS - My World of Work.
Existing ILA accounts can continue to be used against any eligible courses which commence prior to 30th September 2017.
