Strathclyde Online LearningUpskilling @ Strathclyde

Upskilling @ Strathclyde delivers a range of short and flexible modules developed across disciplines.

Funded by the Scottish Government and Scottish Funding Council (SFC), we offer a range of modules which are designed to provide more agile support for both employers and employees to upskill and reskill, increasing provision of in-work learning using flexible models of delivery.

Currently available to study online, these modules are credit bearing and learners will receive an e-certificate upon completion.

Funding Eligibility

Scholarships for Upskilling may be available for Scottish based learners, although modules are available to Employers and Learners across the UK and internationally.

For 2022, we have also expanded our suite of fully funded Microcredentials modules and offer opportunities for those:

  • aged over 25 years;
  • domiciled in Scotland;
  • unemployed, at risk of redundancy or their job under threat as a result of Covid-19 or the economic impact of the EU exit;
  • have identified a skills gap in their current job or to support their return to employment;
  • have identified a skills gap as part of the Just Transition to Net Zero.
