Skills Bootcamps are the modern, practical way to build your skills to get the job you want. If you’re aged 19+, in work, self-employed, recently unemployed or returning to work after a break, and looking to quickly increase your skills in a specific area and fast-track into a new job or get ahead with your current employer, a Skills Bootcamp could be the right choice for you.
The Skills Bootcamps model will help employers play a leading role in the skills system by enabling them to fill skills gaps at a local level. You can encourage your existing staff to take a Skills Bootcamp, helping your business to fill skills gaps whilst also investing in retaining your people. Alternatively, you could look to offer a job interview to an individual who completes a Skills Bootcamp and recruit new talent into your organisation.
