Infrastructure Finance & Programmes

We are working on delivering and managing a wide range of infrastructure and finance programmes that support Scottish Government’s National Infrastructure Mission and can inform policy ambitions for decarbonisation and inclusive growth.

Learning Estate Investment Programme

In November 2018, the Deputy First Minister and Cabinet Secretary for Education and Skills, John Swinney, announced the launch of a Learning Estate Strategy to be developed in conjunction with COSLA. 

Alongside the launch of the Learning Estate Strategy, the Deputy First Minister also announced £1bn of funding to deliver more schools.

On 9 September 2019, the Scottish Government published its new Scottish Learning Estate Strategy in tandem with the announcement of schools in the first phase to benefit from the £1bn of funding

Kerry Alexander, director of infrastructure finance and programmes at the Scottish Futures Trust, said: “As programme managers we are very much looking forward to working with our public sector partners on the Learning Estate Investment Programme to deliver world-class learning environments to support the future educational needs of learners, as well as providing vibrant community facilities for everyone to enjoy and benefit from.
