Skills Bootcamps

Delivering a future-proof workforce for Cheshire & Warrington businesses

Skills Bootcamps are part of the Government’s Lifetime Skills Guarantee, helping everyone gain skills for life. Skills Bootcamps will support Cheshire and Warrington’s social and economic objectives of delivering a sustainable, healthy, inclusive and growing economy. Cheshire and Warrington LEP have been awarded a further £2 million from the Department for Education to deliver Skills Bootcamps to over 640 learners in Cheshire and Warrington between April 2024 and March 2025.

Skills Bootcamps are funded, flexible courses of up to 16 weeks, designed to meet the needs of our local employers in Cheshire & Warrington. Skills Bootcamps will therefore help employers to fill vacancies and develop the necessary skills of their workforce; as well as helping local residents develop the skills required to be industry-ready and find a new job or develop their existing skills to progress further in work. 

Key features of Skills Bootcamps: 

  • Course length of at least 60 guided learning hours and over no more than 16 weeks 
  • Predominantly delivered at level 3-5 training for medium to high level vacancies 
  • Training available for employees in the public, private and voluntary sectors, as well as those that are unemployed or self-employed 
  • Flexible in delivery to work around as far as possible people’s existing commitments, with many Skills Bootcamps providing options for part-time, evening or weekend delivery 
  • Support for up to 6 months after the Skills Bootcamp to ensure graduates are able to utilise their new skills in the workplace and get the new job/role/new opportunities 
  • Large employers (250+ employees) will receive a 70% saving on the cost of the learners they are sponsoring, this is increased to a 90% saving for smaller employers (fewer than 250 employees).
