Starting this year, the government is investing £2.5 billion in the National Skills Fund as part of their Plan for Jobs agenda. The National Skills Fund will help adults to train and gain the valuable skills they need to improve their job prospects.
Our Digital Skills Bootcamp offers a free, flexible course lasting 12 weeks for adults aged 19 or over and who are either in work, self-employed, recently unemployed or returning to work after a break. It will give people the opportunity to build up sector-specific skills and fast-track to an interview with a local employer.
Darren Perry, Principal at Walsall Studio School, said:
“We are acutely aware of the need to address our national digital skills shortages and are working proactively at the local level with our partner organisations and community to identify accessible routes into digital careers that will meet the growing needs of industry in the years ahead.
I am delighted that Walsall Studio School has been given the opportunity to support the DfE’s Digital Bootcamp initiative. Our digital marketing bootcamp acts as a fast-track ramp for people who are seeking opportunities to up-skill or cross-skill and offers a gateway into lucrative career paths and appealing job prospects. If you want to become indispensable in the job market, digital skills have never been in higher demand.”
