What are

Skills Bootcamps?

Skills Bootcamps represent funded, adaptable programs that can run up to 4 weeks, empowering adults to develop industry-specific skills that can accelerate their path towards securing new job interviews or advancing in their current roles and positions. This initiative aligns with the Government’s Lifetime Skills Guarantee, ensuring a culture of lifelong learning for all. To qualify for funding, you should live in Leicester / Leicestershire and be aged 19 or over.
In line with the 2019 manifesto pledge to allocate £3bn via the National Skills Fund, the Department for Education (DfE) introduced Skills Bootcamps. These programs are designed to help unemployed adults in gaining valuable new skills, while also assisting employed individuals by adding to their skill sets. This strategic initiative equips individuals with the flexibility to effectively respond to the rapidly changing demands of the job market.
