Accelerate and other courses

If you have a suggestion for training or don't see the course you need, please get in touch with our Information and Training Manager Joan Lyle. We have good links with other publishing training providers and are always happy to work with them to bring training to Scotland. Below are some ideas for training we'd like your feedback on (legal, design and Adobe training), links to other publishing training providers and training-related projects we are involved in (Accelerate Programme and Digital Skills and Adaptability).

  • Project

    This exciting programme of advice, training and support from Publishing Scotland is for publishing companies who are in the early stages of their development and want a helping hand to grow their business. Applications for the 2017-18 Programme closed in February 2017.
