Are courses accredited?

Our courses are not accredited or certificated unless otherwise stated.

Can I attend a course as an individual?

Yes. Most of the training opportunities are designed for individuals, unless otherwise stated. You must be employed within the public or third sector in Scotland. Unfortunately, our offer does not extend to contracted staff or suppliers.

Can I attend part of a course?

We recommend that you attend the entire course or programme so that you don’t miss any important information.

Can I suggest a course that isn’t listed?

Yes. Email us digitalacademy@gov.scot and tell us your ideas. We can’t guarantee to provide the course for you but we will listen and include it in our demand planning.

How do I cancel a course booking?

If you have booked to attend a course, you will receive an automated email from us. This will contain the details that allows you to cancel. Please note that a cancellation fee may apply.

How do I pay for a course?

Once your course has finished, we will be in touch to request a PO number which will be referenced on our invoice. You can then choose to pay either through the invoice or by your organisation’s credit card. Instructions are given on the back of the invoice.

How much does it cost to attend a course?

All fees are illustrated on the course information page.

Is training delivered online?

As a result of Covid restrictions, all our training is delivered online unless otherwise stated. We use a variety of online platforms and you’re advised to check the course details for further information.

Who can register to attend a course?

Anyone working within the public and third sector in Scotland can register to attend one of our courses or programmes.

Why do you charge to attend a course?

The Scottish Digital Academy runs on a cost recovery model. This is a corporate offering which goes beyond Scottish Government, as the courses are open to all Scottish public and third sector organisations. Specialist resource, operational and ad hoc costs need to be recovered.

The charges for attending courses and for using our service are outlined in our Terms and Conditions. All areas have delegated learning & development budgets and we are only seeking to recover the cost of delivering courses. We’d be more than happy to have a chat with teams about how the Scottish Digital Academy can support learning needs.
