About us

The Skills Training Network is the one-stop shop for employability programmes in Scotland. Our sophisticated but easy-to-use platform enables young people, parents, key workers and partner agencies to discover training courses in their area, and make a referral or application directly through our site.

Young people were heavily involved in the creation of the Skills Training Network, so you’ll find all sorts of innovative design features on our site that make programmes easier to understand – everything from eligibility details to nearby food outlets and transport links.

We hope you find the Skills Training Network a useful and empowering tool.
