Funding towards Training / CPD
Any information regarding grants or funding that can be used for training and CPD is always sought after and will be placed on this page.
Individual Learning Accounts - £200 FREE to go towards training!
Many of you will not be aware of how to apply for your £200 Individual Learning Account Grant. This grant is available to anyone who earns less than £22,000 (e.g. as a self employed person you declared less than that for taxable profit - that should be most of us, if not, sack your accountant). This money can be used to pay for a wide range of training, much of which can be used as CPD, such as the first aid course 10 of us attended at West Lothian College last year.

Money from the Scottish Government for training
The Scottish Government
provide Flexible Training opportunities grants, which can be applied for by any
small business with less than 150 employees. With these you can recoup up to 50%
(to a maximum of £500) of training costs
for NON MANDATORY training. This money is available to ANY small business, so if you are in the process
of tendering a fleet contract to a small employer then they
can recoup some of the costs they will pay you. Making sure they
know about this could swing the contract in your favour! The stipulation is that the grant must have been applied for and approved BEFORE TRAINING COMMENCES.
The WLDIA advises all learners to be very careful booking any driving test through ANY other website, as you may
end up paying a lot more
for your test than you need to.
