Skills Bootcamps

Surrey County Council is partnering to support Skills Bootcamps across it’s county. Residents can participate in courses run in the county.

What are Skills Bootcamps?

Skills Bootcamps offer free, flexible online training programs lasting up to 14 weeks for residents of England. These courses are designed to enhance industry-specific skills and accelerate career advancement. Part of the Government’s Lifetime Skills Guarantee and Plan for Jobs, these bootcamps aim to equip individuals 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. These bootcamps provide an excellent opportunity for individuals to advance in their current roles with employer support, transition to new careers, or secure new job opportunities.
