Apex provides a number of training opportunities which can be made available across Scotland. With the exception of one, all of our courses can be funded through Individual Training Accounts (ITA) and will be of benefit to anyone seeking employment or for employers who wish to upskill their own staff. Our fully qualified trainers will be happy to discuss your requirements.
Organisations wishing to deliver these courses to groups of staff can contact Apex Scotland’s training department for a free quote. Please contact Derek Milligan at email@example.com.
Please Note: Skills Development Scotland (SDS) has advised that Individual Training Account applications are on hold as the initial target of 3700 applications has been met. SDS and the Scottish Government are exploring options to maximise the impact of the scheme within the available budget.
If your application has been approved, you must book onto a course within four weeks of receiving your confirmation email.
Affected individuals will be able to reapply if, as expected, ITA funding re-opens in July 2019.
This decision has been taken by Skills Development Scotland and is regretfully outwith Apex Scotland’s control.
Apex Scotland will still run training courses for individuals who can self-fund or who engage with our Steps service. Our full CSCS course for the green labourer’s card costs £200 (free while taking part in the Steps service). If you would like further information about CSCS or our other training courses please contact us on 0131 220 0130 or telephone your local Apex office. If you would like further information about ITA funding including registering your interest in funding for next year, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will update our website as soon as we are made aware of any changes.
