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, 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. If you are interested in participating in a Skills Bootcamp more information can now be found on the LCR Be More website.

Here you will find more information about the sectors that are covered by Skills Bootcamps along with a list of currently approved Skills Bootcamps where you can apply direct with our training providers to take part.

Skills Bootcamps will help employers play a leading role in the skills system by enabling them to fill skills gaps at a local level. You can play a key role in designing and developing bespoke training to fit the skills needs of your organisation. 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.
