New Anglia LEP, in partnership with Norfolk and Suffolk County Councils, has been successful in gaining £1m funding to deliver Skills Bootcamps on behalf of the Department of Education.
These are a means of delivering short, intensive training courses to give people:
– Initial skills to enter a new sector from another one or a period of unemployment
– Enhanced skills to progress within an existing workplace
– Boosted knowledge to take on new contracts in the case of self-employed.
Training will take place in digital, advanced manufacturing & engineering, construction, green skills and HGV driving.
We will be looking to launch the programme soon once all agreements are in place with the DfE. We will then be looking to go out for tender for training providers in June so continue to watch this space and our social media!
