The Flexible Workforce Development Fund provides an excellent opportunity for Apprenticeship Levy paying companies to undertake staff training and development and increase productivity, fill skills gaps and upskill and retrain existing staff.  

If you are an Apprenticeship Levy paying organisation and haven't already spoken with one of our Business Development Managers to access the fund, call us on 0344 248 0132 or email sales@fife.ac.uk. And remember, funding is limited and will be issued on a first come first served basis, so contact us today to secure your training.

*This is for any training that you want to undertake between 1 August 2019 and 30 September 2020.

Not sure where to start?

If you're not sure what training would benefit you most, we can work with you to assess your training needs and put together a package of funded training which can help you to:

  • increase organisational capacity
  • increase productivity
  • address known skills gaps

We will then design a bespoke workforce development programme tailored to your organisation’s specific training requirements, which could be delivered at your premises throughout Scotland or at one of our purpose-built facilities.

Don’t delay! Funding is limited and will be issued on a first come first serve basis, so contact us today to secure your training.
