Funding for Beauty Courses

You may be entitled to funding towards your training!

Individual Learning Accounts (ILA)

Individual Learning Accounts (ILAs) are for people who are 16 or over and living in Scotland and are for individuals who will benefit most from this support.

You can apply for an ILA if you do not have a degree or above, are not undertaking any secondary, further or higher education, training through the Employability Fund or Modern Apprenticeship, or participating on the Community Jobs Scotland programme.

You must also have an income of £22,000 a year or less, or be on benefits to be eligible to get up to £200 towards the costs of learning or training.

It's a great way to pay for learning new skills and because the money isn't a loan, you don't need to worry about paying it back.
