National Transition Training Fund
The National Energy Efficiency Transition Support and Heat Pump Training Fund, supported by ESP has been put in place by the Scottish Government to support those in the Energy, Engineering and Construction sectors who have had their careers affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The fully funded courses, offered by nine Scottish Colleges including West College Scotland, are aimed at upskilling and enhancing the qualifications of individuals aged 25 or older who are redundant or at risk of being made redundant.
The courses cover key areas and combine online learning with onsite practical elements to ensure participants gain the skills and qualifications employers really value.
You will not need to pay towards any element of the training. All training must be completed by 31 July 2021.
