Software Training Scotland (STS), the fast-growing SQA accredited learning centre has announced a further expansion at Scarlow House Business Centre in Port Glasgow.  

The company - which initially moved into Scarlow House in March 2018 - has enjoyed a further period of growth and interest in its wide range of training courses. 

As a result, STS has more than doubled the space let from regeneration company Riverside Inverclyde (ri) to 495 square feet.

“We are delighted to increase our footprint at Scarlow House Business Centre and we’d like to thank Riverside Inverclyde for their support to date and making this expansion possible.” 

Paul Brooks, Co-founder and Director - Software Training Scotland

The company has achieved great success to date with its dedicated team of tutors and assistants. Utilising state-of-the-art mobile digital equipment, it has been able to deliver the highest standards of service to their customers to date with their Digital Skills courses to support Communities, Education and Businesses. 

The increased space will enable Software Training Scotland to focus on further development of their innovative courses, further supporting their aim to create learning opportunities across Scotland for people of all ages.

"We’ve enjoyed a further growth period at Software Training Scotland and as a result we are delighted to continue to grow our business in Inverclyde.  We deliver courses all over Scotland remotely, so the need for an easily accessible location for our staff and customers was important. 

"Our provision of local Digital Skills training through Skills Development Scotland’s Individual Training Account funding has increased substantially so the extra space at Scarlow House is ideal for our needs."

Paul Brooks, Co-founder and Director - Software Training Scotland

“We are delighted that Software Training Scotland continues to grow from its base at Scarlow House and this expansion further supports both our aims.  The Business Centre is a great match for STS and we wish Paul and his team continued success with the company in the coming months."

Andrew Bowman, Head of Business Investment and Operations - Riverside Inverclyde

Scarlow House Business Centre has been developed to support start-up businesses and to those on a growth trajectory.  The Centre’s suites come furnished and are part-serviced, offering customers a package which includes utilities and cleaning facilities from £75 a week. 

Located on Scarlow Street in Port Glasgow, the Centre offers private parking facilities and is in close proximity to the M8 road network, Port Glasgow Railway Station and Gallagher Retail Park. 

With the increased market demand, Riverside Inverclyde will be turning its attention to filling the remaining two suites at Scarlow ranging from 102 sq ft to 348 sq ft.
