The Liverpool City Region Combined Authority has secured £8.1m to deliver Skills Bootcamps in a range of sectors over the next year, after successfully piloting Skills Bootcamps in digital skills over the last two years.
Skills Bootcamps provide training in construction, digital, engineering, green skills, HGV drivers, and rail. Funding for years two and three will be based on performance.
Thousands of people are expected to benefit from the free courses, which are intended to raise skill levels in key sectors, enabling eligible adults to move into more sustainable roles, and provide Liverpool City Region residents with the skills the region’s employers really need.
Skills Bootcamps are funded by the Department for Education. The free flexible courses last up to 16-weeks and are playing a key role in the government’s Levelling Up activity. The Skills Bootcamps will provide training with content at Level 3 standard or above.
