ILA is changing

Skills Development Scotland (SDS) has been working with the Scottish Government to review the ILA scheme.

This is to ensure that it meets the needs of both individuals and the economy, as outlined in Scotland’s Labour Market Strategy.

In line with this review, it’s necessary to make changes to the operation and administration of ILAs. This will ensure that the scheme is delivering the training and skills that will help people get into work or improve the job prospects of those in low-paid work.

It means that the current scheme will be closed for new applications for a few months. The new scheme, Individual Training Accounts (ITAs) will come into effect in October 2017.
