Flexible Workforce Development Fund

Flexible Workforce Development Fund


The Flexible Workforce Development Fund is now open to Private, Public and Third Sector companies who pay the UK Government’s Apprenticeship Levy (paying more than £3M in salaries each year) or who are a SME. If you are eligible, you can access up to £15k support for reskilling and upskilling. 

Eligible employers submit one application to the Fund. 

For those operating on a Scotland-wide basis or across more than one college region, only one application can be submitted to the college of your choice.



If you are an employer with a wage bill of over £3m then you may be eligible to apply for up to £15k via the Flexible Workforce Development Fund to meet your skills gaps. 

Levy paying employers have the flexibility to pass on the benefits of Fund access to their supply chain.
