Skills Development Scotland supports businesses across the country
Whatever you need, our executives are on hand to help. Through our online tools and face-to-face service, we'll help you meet your business goals.
Ready to get started? Our online tools are a great place to begin
Make your free Employer Hub account and get full access to our handy online tools. They save your progress as you go, meaning you can work on them whenever you get some downtime.
Get your skills-first action plan
Manage and grow your business, with us by your side. Answer some questions, then we'll give you a plan of bite-sized tasks. They're supported by useful products and services to help you develop your people and working practices.
Define your future skills needs
You know your team and your business, but markets and methods change over time. Let's see how well your current roles match up to the skills your business needs, now and in the future.
Assess skills in your organisation
Take a deep dive into your team's skillsets. You'll get a detailed breakdown of the skills and knowledge gaps within your business. Afterwards, why not work with our team to get a free skills plan in place?
Here's what a free Employer Hub account can do for your business
We'll work with you to make sure your business gets the support it needs to thrive. Whether you'd like to use our Skills for Growth service, get help with redundancy or check out our online tools — we've got you covered.
Get started by making your free Employer Hub account. It'll only take you a few minutes to sign up, then you'll have access to our full range of support. If you're new to skills planning, we'd suggest you use the Skills Management tool first. It'll give you an initial, personalised skills action plan for your business.
Use our online skills tools – they don’t take long and you can save your progress. We've assessed more than 1000 businesses and know what drives success.
You’ll have access to Skills for Growth. Used by more than 1000 employers, it works like a diagnostic service for your business. Our team will help you maximise your business’ potential.
We’re developing a series of webinars. These will cover upskilling and reskilling, apprenticeships and skills management. Sign up to our email alerts and we’ll tell you when they drop.
Working with SDS and the Skills for Growth team was a very easy process. We ended up with a tailored plan for our needs.
