What does this involve?

My World of Work is Scotland’s career information and advice website. It’s brought to you by Skills Development Scotland (SDS) – the national skills agency. 
 
It’s packed full of features that can support you and your employees, including one of the biggest course searches in Scotland. Your employees will also benefit from the Skills Discovery – it'll help them understand where their strengths lie and could prove useful for their development plans.

How it can help employers

You'll want to equip your employees with the right tools for the job. Yet, high quality training can be time-consuming to find. 
 
That’s where My World of Work can help. Whether you want your employees to build on their skills or develop new ones, the course search can help you and your employees pinpoint the right one. 
 
You’ll find a vast range of courses, delivered by some of the world’s leading learning providers. There is a mixture of free and paid courses. 
 
Your employees could also get up to £200 towards the cost of a training course with an SDS Individual Training Account (ITA). They can use this to build skills for a certain role or get some fresh training to take their career, and your business, to the next level.
