The Individual Training Account (ITA) funding will be open for applications at the end of October 2017. This will replace the Individual Learning Account (ILA). If you are eligible - either employed or self-employed and earning £22,000 or less per year OR in receipt of benefits - then you’ll still be entitled to funding of up to £200 per year towards a course.

The ITA funding is available to cover fees for one course per year, and courses that are approved for funding will be geared towards helping you with getting a job or progressing in your career.

Applications are due to open on at the end of October – however at the moment there are no details released from SDS on how to apply. Any announcements will be on their website. We will update this page as soon as we know more.

Once you have received your letter of award you can use your ITA towards the cost of your course.
