Flexible Workforce Development Fund
In December 2016 the Scottish Government announced the introduction of a new Flexible Workforce Development Fund (FWDF) to provide employers with flexible development training to up-skill and re-skill their employees.
The Scottish Government allocated £10 million for the FWDF in its pilot year 2017-18. SFC distributed the funding amongst regional colleges /
strategic bodies across Scotland and will distribute a further £10 million
for a second year in 2018-19.

The FWDF toolkit outlines a national campaign to promote the Fund and provides guidelines and a range of marketing resources can be used to help promote it to businesses across Scotland.
Colleges Scotland has produced a set of case studies to show how the college sector is using the FWDF.
