Skills Bootcamps: Your Pathway to a Promising Career

A new series of free, government-funded training programmes are helping people across Cornwall and Devon boost their skills and start new careers.

Aimed at adults aged 19 and above, the high-quality courses, developed in partnership with employers, are part of the Government’s Lifetime Skills Guarantee.

“Skills Bootcamps are an absolute game-changer for individuals looking to acquire new skills, upskill or pivot their careers,” said Gareth Lawless, the project coordinator for The Cornwall College Group (TCCG).

“With an emphasis on accessibility and adaptability, the Skills Bootcamps are designed to meet the diverse learning needs of our community. And what’s more, they are a fully funded opportunity, courtesy of the Department for Education.”

TCCG has announced dates for its Skills Bootcamps and are open to all residents of Devon and Cornwall, whether currently employed, seeking employment or planning to re-join the workforce.

They cover a diverse range of sector-specific skills in bricklaying and hospitality.
