D2N2 Make Strides in the Provision of Bootcamps

D2N2 LEP has been awarded over £3m by central government to support 1,500 individuals working across different sectors in the East Midlands between 2022 and 2023 offering local people to trade up to better jobs in burgeoning business sectors such as Digital and Green Skills in Construction and Transport. 

Skills Bootcamps are available to all adults aged 19 including those who are unemployed, returning to work after a break, in full-time or part-time employment or who are self-employed. 

For those who are unemployed or returning to work you will have the offer of a guaranteed job interview with a local employer when you complete your qualification which could fast-track you into a new job using the new skills you have gained on the Skills Bootcamp. 

For most Skills Bootcamps, no previous knowledge in the subject is needed – you just need a good grasp of the English language and the willingness to learn new skills.

How do Skills Bootcamps work?

Most Skills Bootcamps are delivered at Level 3 (‘A’ Levels) although some in key sectors such as Green Skills can be delivered at Level 2. Some of our Skills Bootcamps are delivered at Level 4 and above.

All Skills Bootcamps offer a minimum of 60 learning hours to people over a maximum of 16 weeks. 

For those who are unemployed or returning to work you will have the offer of a guaranteed job interview with a local employer when you complete your qualification which could fast-track you into a new job using the new skills you have gained on the Skills Bootcamp. 

Skills Bootcamps for Employers 

Whether you’re a public, private or voluntary organisation, our Skills Bootcamps can give you access to new talent pools of individuals who have just completed up-to-date training, which has been shaped by the challenges businesses in the East Midlands are experiencing.

There are several ways your business or organisation can benefit from Skills Bootcamps:

  • Train your existing workforce by booking your staff onto Skills Bootcamps
  • Put yourself forward as a business willing to offer a guaranteed interview for participants who have completed the programme, so you have direct access to a newly trained talent pool.
  • Working with Skills Bootcamp providers to fill skills gaps by involvement in the design and proposed delivery of Skills Bootcamp provision. 

Employer contributions 

Businesses looking to upskill their existing workforce (defined as someone directly employed by the employer, not a sub-contractor, or freelancer) by enrolling staff onto a Skills Bootcamp will be expected to pay 30% of the training costs. 

This reduces to 10% if the employer is a small or medium enterprise (SME) with 250 or less employees. 

There is no cost to individual employees who are accessing the training through their employer.
