Although not all our jobs require specific qualifications, we do encourage anyone who wants to study and develop their career.

There are, literally, thousands of courses available at all levels, from Further Education Colleges and Universities across Scotland.

My World of Work has a comprehensive list of all these courses, training and other voluntary opportunities across Scotland.

UCAS (Universities and Colleges Application Service) offers advice on choosing the right course and help with the application, offers and results process. You can search the UCAS database of courses here and we have also included links to a number of other websites which may help you find and choose the course that's right for you.

Of course, some people don't want to go to university. Here is a useful site with some advice if you are looking for alternative ways into work.
