Employability Fund Provision

The Employability Fund brings together a number of national training programmes to provide a more flexible, outcome-focused provision for individuals which is responsive to the needs of employers and local labour markets.

The Employability Fund is a government backed training scheme and is funded by Skills Development Scotland. This funding includes a training allowance for some candidates and assistance towards travel costs. There is no financial cost to the candidate and all PPE, if required, is provided.

Borders College is a provider of the Employability Fund that aids the candidate in achieving an SQA accredited qualification or short course certification alongside some work experience over an agreed timescale.

The main objective is to give candidates the opportunity to build confidence and gain worthwhile experience in a vocational area of their choice and add to their Curriculum Vitae. Following successful completion there may be a job opportunity immediately.
