Can employers get involved with Skills Bootcamps?

Yes.  Employers can get involved now in several ways.

  1. Employers can offer interviews to learners who are looking for jobs and have completed a Skills Bootcamp.  Look at the list of Skills Bootcamps that are running across Greater Lincolnshire and Rutland, contact the provider who is running the Skills Bootcamps that you are interested in, and tell them you would like to interview learners for a job in your business once they have complete the course 
  2. Employers can send their own staff onto Skills Bootcamps to help fill skills gaps in the workplace. Courses are heavily subsidised, and the employer is asked to pay a 10% contribution (if employing fewer than 250 employes) or a 30% contribution (if employing more than 250 employees).  The employer contribution will vary depending on the type and length of course.  For an SME the contribution is likely to range from £175 to £340 per learner.  Contact the provider directly to discuss what you are looking for.  In some cases minor changes can be made to the Skills Bootcamp course to suit your needs. 
  3. Employers can work with local colleges, training providers and universities to design new Skills Bootcamps in preparation for further funding in January 2024. Employers can help to create the technical courses that they want adults to attend to make them employment-ready.  Contact a local provider directly, or email the Greater Lincolnshire LEP for further information. 

Skills Bootcamps are free to eligible adults over the age of 19. 
Typically Skills Bootcamps are at Level 3, 4 or 5, although some are permitted at Level 2.
