What is the Flexible Workforce Development Fund (FWDF)?

FWDF is a fund that provides employers with development and training opportunities to up-skill and re-skill their existing workforce.

Launched by the Scottish Government in September 2017 and supported by Colleges Scotland, the fund will provide over £10m of training to employers in Scotland who have been subject to the Apprenticeship Levy.

The one-year pilot fund aims to encourage innovation in the economy, drive inclusive and sustainable growth, ensure a productive and engaged workforce capable of meeting the needs of employers and increase productivity in the work place.
