Skills Bootcamps - part of the Government’s Lifetime Skills Guarantee and Plan for Jobs. 


Skills Bootcamps are flexible courses of up to 16 weeks, giving people the opportunity to build up sector-specific skills and fast-track to an interview with a local employer.


They’re designed for adults aged 19 years or over, and who are either in work (or self-employed) or recently unemployed (some Skills Bootcamps have additional eligibility criteria). They give people the opportunity to build up sector-specific skills and fast-track to an interview with a local employer. 


We’re partnering with Manchester Digital, The Specialists Hub, and The Heroworx Institute to form a local group to deliver Skills Bootcamp in Digital.


Our next Skills Bootcamp in Digital starts on 29 November (it runs 29 November 2021 - 21 March 2022).
