Workforce development, skills and training

The Scottish Borders workforce is adaptable and flexible with many people re-skilling to reflect the changing requirements of employers. Staff loyalty and retention levels are amongst the highest in Scotland.

Skills Development Scotland aims to drive forward real, positive and sustained change in Scotland's skills performance by offering careers advice, on-the-job training and funding for learning at every stage.

Skills Development Scotland can also help employers to get the best out of their people. Employer services range from funding for employee training and training plan development to redundancy support.
