Skills Bootcamps launched to build essential skills in your business

Skills Bootcamps offer free, flexible courses of up to 16 weeks for adults aged 19 or over and who are either in work or recently unemployed. They can give employees the opportunity to gain skills that will support their progression within their existing workplace. Alternatively, for those out of work, it can give people the opportunity to build up sector-specific technical and digital skills, and fast track them to an interview with a local employer.

The programme has been developed by the Government as part of the Lifetime Skills Guarantee and Plan for Jobs, in partnership with employers, providers and local authorities, to help people develop the skills that are in demand. While most are fully funded, some Bootcamps will require employers to make a cost contribution to the courses with the remainder of the cost co-funded by the government.

Participants who are employed but looking to start a tech career, the self-employed, career changers/returners or those unemployed within the last 12 months will receive full government funding. Please contact the relevant Bootcamp for further details.

Below is a list of online Bootcamps available to those living in York and North Yorkshire. You can click on the link to find out further details about each course and how to apply. If you want to speak with our team about Skills Bootcamps or other funded courses for your business, please get in contact.
