In our diverse sectors, we work with industry, universities, colleges and skills bodies to fill skills gaps, develop industry-ready talent and help businesses achieve their growth ambitions. Results include:


• custom-built HN, MSc, PhD and EngD programmes
• MSc scholarships, attracting the best and brightest to industry-relevant courses
• industry placements and projects
• internships
• training for those already in our sectors – from data science bootcamps to aquaculture management training.

And much else besides – all with the aim of helping businesses to innovate and grow, and boosting Scotland’s success in key sectors.
