The Combined Authority’s Skills Bootcamp offer

The West of England Combined Authority has identified 10 unique projects (lots) to support organisations, sector representative groups, employers and/or delivery partners in the West of England Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) area to address skills shortages.

The programme will deliver flexible training programmes for adults (19+), lasting up to 16 weeks and a minimum of 60 guided learning hours. The flexible approach allows adults to train around existing commitments.

Participants will have access to in-demand skills training and a guaranteed interview with a local employer, with the aim of enabling the learner to secure a more sustainable job and higher wages over time.
