Devon & Cornwall Skills Bootcamps

This summer, we are providing a number of Skills Bootcamps across Devon and Cornwall. Skills Bootcamps are free, flexible courses of up to 16 weeks, giving people the opportunity to build up sector-specific skills and fast-track to an interview with an employer.

These will be delivered in a blend of online, in-person and where relevant site visits and where possible we will accommodate hybrid learning and recorded sessions for those who are unable to attend any sessions.

The Skills Bootcamps are fully funded for learners and are part of the Government’s Lifetime Skills Guarantee, helping everyone gain skills for life. They are designed to help teach and strengthen skills for anyone who wants to increase their business activity, up-skill in their current role, or gain vital skills to secure a new position. Learners from Cornwall, Plymouth, Devon and Torbay regions are all eligible to apply for the Skills Bootcamps, with the in-person sessions being held in local locations.

What topics will the Skills Bootcamps cover? 

We will be starting with our first two Skills Bootcamps in Digital Marketing and Digital Workplace Skills in June, followed by Future of Construction in July.

Is there a cost to me or my business for the Skills Bootcamps? 

The Skills Bootcamps cost £1,848, but are fully funded for learners. Depending on your employment status or the size of your company, there are three options for funding available from Devon County Council.

How are these funded? 

The Skills Bootcamps are part of the UK Government’s Lifetime Skills Guarantee, helping everyone gain skills for life, funded by Devon County Council and delivered by Building Growth South West.
