Skills Boost and Accelerator courses

Start 2021 on a new path!

As part of a unique collaboration, Edinburgh College has launched a range of courses to deliver skills and opportunities to individuals who have been impacted by the economic downturn caused by the Coronavirus pandemic.

Starting from January 2021, our Skills Boost Courses and Accelerator Programmes offer you the chance to retrain and upskill in key industry areas.  

All Further Education students who successfully complete an Accelerator or Skills Boost course will be guaranteed a place on to a higher level programme at Edinburgh College on successful completion.

Take the first step, apply today and to help maximise your job prospects or lead you to further study.

The East Central Scotland Colleges Collaboration is supported by the Scottish Government’s Young Person’s Guarantee Fund and National Transition Training Fund.
