Recruiting Learners Now =================================>>

The LEP, in partnership with Lincolnshire County Council, has secured funding to lead the development of Skills Bootcamps across Greater Lincolnshire including Rutland.   
Skills Bootcamps are part of the Government's Lifetime Skills Guarantee, helping everyone gain skills for life.   

What are Skills Bootcamps?
Skills Bootcamps provide learners with skills that employers need.  They are flexible courses of at least 60 hours of learning (and no more than 16 weeks), giving people the opportunity to gain sector-specific skills and fast-track to an interview with a local employer OR gain new skills in an existing job.   

Typically Level 3, 4 or 5.  They are free to learners and can be online,  face-to-face, or a mixture of both depending on the subject.  

Who can attend Skills Bootcamps? 
Skills Bootcamps are for most adults over the age of 19.  Learners who are employed, self-employed or unemployed can attend Skills Bootcamps to gain skills for a new job or a new contract. 

Employers can also send members of staff onto Skills Bootcamps to fill skills gaps within the business.  The cost to an employer to send staff on Skills Bootcamps is subsidised by Government.  Government funding pays for most of the training.  An SME contributes just 10% and large businesses 30%.  The cost to the employer will vary from £150 to £850 per learner depending on the type of course.   Click here to find out how else employers can get involved

Success.  The first year of Skills Bootcamps is coming to an end.  272 learners attended Skills Bootcamps and 96% have taken on new roles or additional responsibilities with their current employment, or (where unemployed) have gained new jobs.
