ILA Scotland courses
Information about how to apply for courses eligible for ILA funding can be found on each course page
The Scottish Government launched a scheme to provide funding of up to £500 per year, to help towards the cost of training for all individuals in Scotland.
The funding is open to all applicants over 16 years of age and resident in Scotland with an income of £22,000 a year or less or who are on benefits. Further details available at the MyWorldofWork website
Common courses studied with Mycourse Training are:
- Online bookkeeping courses
- Sage courses with Sage certification
- Short online courses in finance
How does it work ?
The first step is to apply for your learning account by telephoning the ILA Scotland helpline: 0800 917 8000. Do it now - it's easy ! You may also apply online - see http://www.myworldofwork.co.uk/section/funding for more details about the funding available to suit you
They will send you an application form, which you should complete and return as soon as possible. Once your account is opened you will receive an Individual Learning Account number and your account will be credited with your funds.
What next ?
Identify the course that you would like to follow and contact an ILA Scotland provider such as Mycourse who will book you onto your chosen course.
Once your course is booked, you will receive a learning token from ILA Scotland which details the course, price, provider. The token can only be used for the course that you have booked. You must sign, date and send this token to your provider by post before you start your course.
When can I start the course ?
You may start your course as soon as you have completed the process of registering and handing over your learning token and any balance of cost to the training provider.
Are there any hidden costs ?
There may be additional charges such as examination fees. If the cost of the course exceeds the funding available then you will be liable to pay for the balance. From 17th December 2008, there is no requirement for you to pay a minimum contribution towards your chosen course. As long as the price of the course does not exceed £200.00 in total - you will not pay anything. Of course, some accredited courses may cost much more - but you can still use your ILA200 and just pay the balance.
