National Transition Training Fund

Supported by the Scottish Funding Council and the Scottish Government, fully funded training places are now available through the National Transition Training Fund. The funding is available to people resident in Scotland that have lost their jobs, are at risk of redundancy or those that have identified a skills gap within their current job.

ESP will be distributing funding through 11 partner colleges, including West College Scotland to allow them to upskill tradespeople and help them move into roles with better potential for future growth and job retention.

It will offer training opportunities in areas with the potential for growth in the labour market with employment prospects.  Energy/Energy efficiency will be a key focus with training available in areas such as: Air Source/Ground Source Heat Pumps, Solar and Electric Vehicle maintenance as well as the more conventional 18th edition Electrical training.

Training must be completed by the 31 July 2022.
