Skills Bootcamps

TechUP is proud to be delivering two free Skills Bootcamps as part an IoC Consortium on behalf of the Department for Education as part of their Lifetime Skills Guarantee and Plan for Jobs, in partnership with employers, providers and local authorities.

Skills Bootcamps are free adult courses designed to boost career prospects in the technology sector and are available to those aged 19+ who are seeking to retrain into a tech career. The Lifetime Skills Guarantee aims to provide adults with the relevant skills to progress in work and ensure employers have access to a skilled workforce.

Following our success with TechUPWomen, TechUP will be using our award-winning experience to deliver two industry focused Skills Bootcamps in data and software development. Designed in close collaboration with industry these 14 week online courses will incorporate one to one mentoring, flexible learning and exciting guest speakers as customised confidence building sessions for those belong to an underserved community. On successful completion of the Skills Bootcamps learners will then be invited to interview with one of our industry partners.

Through these Skills Bootcamps, TechUP continues its mission to empower the underserved and so encourage applications from those belonging to minority groups such as people of colour, those with disabilities, LGBTQ+ and those with dependants.

Applications for both Skills Bootcamps are currently closed, but we are working hard to reopen for a second wave of applications, find out more about what each Skills Bootcamp will entail below:
