If you’re out of work, looking to up-skill yourself or you’re starting out on your career path, there are free, flexible courses, known as Skills Bootcamps, available to you to open yourself up to local employment opportunities. Skills Bootcamp courses are open to anyone over the age of 19 and can help you gain sector-specific skills and give you an opportunity to fast-track to an interview with a local employer.
One participant who recently completed a skills bootcamp has shared their success story to encourage others to take part in the programme, where they began their bootcamp journey with TDM (The Development Manager) in the summer of 2022. This person had the goal of entering the technology industry, finding a suitable apprenticeship, with the ultimate goal of becoming a software developer.
The participant has successfully moved into a role with Worcestershire County Council in Social Care Case Management and has enrolled onto a Level 6 Apprenticeship at the University of Roehampton.
