What are skills bootcamps?

Skills Bootcamps are free training courses of up to 3 weeks for learners living in England, giving people the opportunity to build up industry specific skills.

These have been developed as part of the Government’s Lifetime Skills Guarantee and Plan for Jobs, helping everyone gain skills for life and providing the perfect first step into a new career. The Government initiative is designed to close the skills gap in the UK that has been intensified by the disruption that coronavirus caused to job sectors and businesses.
Skills Bootcamps are a great way to progress in a current position with the support of your employer, change careers, or secure new employment.
