Skills Bootcamps

Skills Bootcamps are flexible courses of up to 16 weeks, giving people the opportunity to build up sector-specific skills and fast-track to an interview with a local employer. These courses are fully funded for learners*.

The Skills Bootcamps are being delivered in partnership with employers, further education training providers and local government. The training and support available is aligned with local and national demand for skills, ensuring that people have a direct line of sight to a job and support people to get skills for life.

If you're aged 19+ and currently unemployed, self-employed, looking to explore a new industry or progress in your current sector, a Skills Bootcamp could be your next step to a better job.

These FREE* flexible courses allow you to gain the skills employers are looking for. You will also be guaranteed a job interview at the end of the course.

*If you are taking the course yourself and not through your employer.
