Skills Bootcamps are flexible level 3 courses of up to 16 weeks for adults aged 19 or over. They give people the opportunity to build up valuable sector-specific skills based on local employer demand and provide a direct path to a job on completion.
They are co-designed and shaped with employers to respond to their skills shortages and job/apprenticeship vacancies.
This training is for adults who are either in work, self-employed, unemployed or returning to work after a break.
