What is an Individual Learning Account (Scotland)

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:

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 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 send this token to your provider 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 contribution to the training provider.

Are there any hidden costs ?

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.

An example:

Assume that you wish to follow our ICB Level 1 Basic Book-keeping course and you have a £200 ILA Account




Your ILA account balance


Course - ICB Level 1 Basic Book-keeping


Your ILA Account balance


You pay to the training provider


Your ILA Account balance



In this case, you will have used all of your ILA funding for this course for the current year.

Let's look at another example - this time, we assume that you wish to follow two courses priced at £75 each



Your ILA account balance


Course 1 - 'Building a website' - course cost


Your ILA Account balance


Course 2 - Creating digital images - course cost


Your ILA Account balance



The £50 left in your account could be used to pay for another course within the year. Use it or lose it - it cannot be carried over to the next year.


You may apply for further funding in the following year, dependent on your circumstances or eligibility.
