Ways to pay



Individual Learning Accounts

ILA Scotland is a Scottish Government scheme that helps you pay for learning that you can do at a time, place and pace that suits you.  It’s for people who have an income of £22,000 a year or less.  Funding of £200 may be available if you are interested in learning something new or brushing up on your skills – the money is not a loan so you don’t have to pay any of it back.

The application process can take a few weeks so you are advised to start your application as soon as possible.  For information and to request an application pack please call the Skills Development Scotland ILA helpline free on 0800 917 8000 or visit
