What are Skills Bootcamps?
Skills Bootcamps are FREE, flexible courses of up to 16 weeks for people aged 19+ in Worcestershire.
They give people the opportunity to build up sector-specific skills and fast-track to an interview with a local employer. The aim is to help people gain #SkillsForLife and to help support the ‘skills demands’ of the county, and ultimately help people to get a better job.
Whether you are out of work, looking to up-skill yourself or are at the start of your career, Skills Bootcamps can enable you to build up key employability skills to support your journey.
You can use the skills gained from the Skills Bootcamps to provide a foundation for further studying such as via an apprenticeship, a T-Level, or to open yourself up to the local employment network to increase your chances of securing employment or future training opportunities.
In Worcestershire the Skills Bootcamps programme cover nursing, digital and technology, construction, heat pump maintenance and installation, green construction and retrofit, management, and social care skills.
