ITA Funding

Our ECDL course is eligible for ITA funding. Get up to £200 towards the cost of the course with an SDS Individual Training Account (ITA). This is not a loan therefore does not have to be repaid.

Is an Individual Training Account right for me?

You could receive up to £200 towards a single course or training episode per year. ITA funding could be right for you if you’re:

  • Aged 16 or over
  • Not in education or involved in any other SDS funded programme
  • Unemployed and looking to get back into work
  • Employed and earning less than £22,000 per year
  • Resident in Scotland

How to apply

You can search for the ITA courses and apply online. You’ll need a valid email address and your National Insurance number to hand.
Once you’ve applied for funding, SDS will send you a confirmation email with instructions on how to book your course. To book a place, you’ll need to prove your income.

You’ll have eight weeks from the time of your successful application to make your booking with the centre.

Courses costing more than £200

If you get ITA funding they will pay up to £200 towards the cost of your ITA approved training course. You’ll pay any outstanding balance direct to the centre.
