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.
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.
