University of the West of Scotland (UWS) prides itself on providing flexible short courses to support upskilling and reskilling.
The workplace continues to change significantly and at pace, leaving many organisations and people with a very real need for lifelong learning – to gain new knowledge and skills, and seek opportunities to innovate and grow.
UWS is the local university for over 40% of Scotland’s population, so we are uniquely placed to understand the specific challenges facing our communities – both urban and remote rural – and their key industry sectors in the years ahead.
We work closely with public, private and third sector partners to understand the needs of the workforce and we are committed to supporting economic recovery in the UK and beyond in a rapidly evolving world.
The Upskilling Fund is delivered by the Scottish Funding Council and was introduced to help tackle skills gaps across Scotland.
The Upskilling Fund is only available across a small selection of our CPD courses. Of these, some are fully funded whilst others are subsidised. Fees and funding information is clearly stated on each course page.
Please note that the Upskilling Fund cannot be transferred to Full Time undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes to reduce the overall course fee.
