Skills Bootcamps

Norfolk and Suffolk County Councils are partnering to support Skills Bootcamps across both counties. Residents of either county can participate in courses run in either county.

What are Skills Bootcamps?

Skills Bootcamps offer free, flexible training. Our 3 or 4 week intensive courses are designed to enhance industry-specific skills and accelerate learners into a relevant job.

They equip participants with lifelong skills and serve as an ideal gateway to a new career path. This initiative is supported by a £3bn government investment intended to bridge the skills gap in the UK—a challenge further exacerbated by the economic disruptions caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Skills Bootcamps offer guaranteed job interviews for those completing the course, building on embedded experience with relevant employers. They are an excellent means to secure a new job. We partner with employers to align learning with roles they need to fill.

Comprehensive Curriculum Coverage

Our Skills Bootcamp in Engineering has been structured to encompass a broad spectrum of engineering disciplines. Each module is carefully tailored to address the specific skill gaps identified by the New Anglia Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering (NAAME) network and  research findings.

Hands-On Practical Training

Recognising the importance of practical skill development, our course places a strong emphasis on hands-on activities, exercises, and real-world projects. Participants will engage in practical exercises designed to enhance their proficiency and readiness for the workplace.

Industry-Relevant Content

The content of our course is co-created in collaboration with leading local employers, ensuring that it remains aligned with industry needs and current trends. Guest lectures, employer visits, and input from industry professionals enrich the curriculum, providing participants with invaluable insights and real-world perspectives.

Career Development Focus

Alongside industry-specific technical skills, the Skills Bootcamp provides embedded experience with relevant employers. This is built on via skills sessions supporting you to gain interviews and move into a job. Learners who complete the course are guaranteed an interview for a relevant role.
