What are Skills Bootcamps?

Skills Bootcamps are six-week courses that boost your employability by developing your digital skills. At the end of the course, you’re then fast-tracked into a guaranteed interview.

The bootcamps are part of the Government's Lifetime Skills Guarantee, an initiative designed to teach people skills for life.

They’ve been specifically created for adults who want to upskill quickly and gain in-demand digital abilities such as data analysis and digital marketing.
