Helping local businesses across the Forth Valley Region to develop their workforce

In December 2016 the Scottish Government announced the introduction of the Flexible Workforce Development Fund (FWDF) to provide Apprenticeship Levy-paying employers with workforce development training to upskill and reskill their existing workforce. Since it was piloted in 2017-18 the fund has expanded to allow small and medium enterprises (SME) to benefit from training, and from 2022-23 both Levy-payers and SMEs can access all available training routes. Helping local businesses across the Forth Valley Region to develop their workforce.
