What is a Skills Bootcamp?

Skills Bootcamps are part of the Government’s Lifetime Skills Guarantee, helping everyone gain skills for life. Skills Bootcamps will support Cheshire and Warrington’s social and economic objectives of delivering a sustainable, healthy, inclusive and growing economy. Cheshire and Warrington LEP have been awarded a further £2 million from the Department for Education to deliver Skills Bootcamps to over 640 learners in Cheshire and Warrington between April 2024 and March 2025. Skills Bootcamps are funded, flexible courses of up to 16 weeks, designed to meet the needs of our local employers in Cheshire & Warrington. Skills Bootcamps will therefore help employers to fill vacancies and develop the necessary skills of their workforce; as well as helping local residents develop the skills required to be industry-ready and find a new job or develop their existing skills to progress further in work.
