Helping employers to fill vacancies and grow the skills of their workforce.

Find out more about an opportunity that has arisen via the Department for Education to fund skills development through skills bootcamps in Cheshire and Warrington.

What are skills bootcamps?

Skills bootcamps are built around the needs of local employers’ and their supply chains. Key features of a skills bootcamp are they provide:

  • flexible training programmes of up to 16 weeks with a minimum of 60 guided learning hours
  • an opportunity to upskill staff and or fill job vacancies
  • level 3 – 5 training for medium to high level vacancies
  • guaranteed job interviews or offer of change in responsibilities
  • employers can be involved in the recruitment onto bootcamps, delivery of training and offering interviews for vacancies
  • training for employees in the public, private and voluntary sectors

Cheshire and Warrington are working with DfE on proposals to deliver skills bootcamps in the sub-region. We are hoping to get the prospectus out shortly in May for the first 3 bootcamps which are likely to be in:

  • Logistics – HGV
  • Digital Marketing
  • Green Skills

If you are interested in delivering these bootcamps or taking part you are welcome to register your interest now. Those registering interest will be given early sight of the developing prospectus. Please contact: [email protected][email protected] or [email protected] for further information.
