Courses costing more than £200
SDS will pay up to £200 towards the cost of your ITA approved training course. The remainder should be paid directly to West Lothian College. 

Please be aware that applying for ITA funding for a specific course does not guarantee you a space onto the course but means funding is in place should you be accepted to study the course of choice at West Lothian College in 2020.  August 2020 start part-time courses open for applications from mid February 2020. 

We will email you after you have applied for ITA to clarify the process and any eligibility criteria. You will have four weeks to produce evidence of eligibility to the college. 

If you wish to use ITA funding you have to apply for ITA on My World of Work before applying to the college.
