About Us

McSence Training Services, based at the McSence Business Park in Mayfield, was opened in 2010 by John Swinney, Minister for Finance and Sustainable Development. 

The first training programme was established in March 2010; a collaboration between McSence,  Midlothian Training Services and Newbattle Community High School. This 26-week programme was the first of many courses to be developed and delivered by our team of trainers.

McSence is owned by the community in which it is based and is governed by an unpaid board of directors. All profits made by the group are either invested in new business ventures and used to create further employment opportunities, or returned to the community in the form of grants to voluntary bodies or individuals in need.
