Glasgow - Growth in Innovative Jobs in the Energy, Health, Transport and Local Safety

Glasgow is the fourth largest city in the United Kingdom and the third – after London and Edinburgh – in terms of GDP per capita. Historically a manufacturing town that relied heavily on shipbuilding and other heavy engineering industries, today Glasgow’s economy is highly diversified and boasts one of the top growth rates in the country. Indeed, as manufacturing has declined, the city has witnessed a corresponding growth in the service sector, propelled by a number of diverse areas including banking, finance, insurance and business services, education, health and public administration.

As a result, the professional development courses offered in Glasgow span a broad range of topics to meet virtually every training need you may have. Browse the courses below to find what you are looking for or, why not, to get a little inspiration and steer your career in a new direction.

Why attend a course in Glasgow?

In line with trends across the UK and the rest of Europe, Glasgow’s heavy industry has seen a progressive decline in favour both of lighter manufacturing and growth in the service sector. As a result, the need for specific re-training programmes has grown, which has in turn sparked an increase in the range of training courses available.

Top industries in Glasgow

As in many big European cities, and without doubt also as a result of Scotland’s rich history in the financial services sector, Banking and Finance have become important drivers of economic growth in Glasgow. Financial training in the city ranges from courses dedicated to non-financial managers to specific tax and payroll programmes, offered on an open or in-house basis.

Professional training in Glasgow

Another blossoming industry across Scotland is Energy, with the renewable energy and oil & gas sectors making big contributions to the Scottish economy and requiring a highly skilled workforce. As a recent winner of the UK’s Future Cities Demonstrator Project, Glasgow is particularly committed to boosting its local economy with a series of projects aimed at integrating energy, health and transport. Training in these areas has thus become increasingly important, and will continue to grow in the future in line with the need to improve citizens’ quality of life and keep economies running.
