Skills bootcamp 

Hertfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) has secured £1.4 million to deliver Skills Bootcamps across the county until 31st March 2024. The programme will support some of Hertfordshire’s priority sectors including Film and TV, Digital, and Net-Zero/Green, as well as Health, Construction and Management.

Skills Bootcamps are flexible courses of up to 16 weeks that give people the opportunity to build sector-specific skills and fast-track to an interview with an employer. These courses are fully funded by the Department for Education (DfE) and free for learners as part of the Government’s Lifetime Skills Guarantee. They are open to all adults over 19, whether they are in full time employment, self-employed, recently unemployed or returning to work after a break. 

Employers can also put forward their own employees to attend Skills Bootcamps to develop new skills that their business needs by making a small contribution to the cost of the programme (10% if they have less than 250 employees and 30% if they have more than 250 employees).
