Skills Bootcamps by The Open University

16 August 2021

Skills Bootcamps are flexible programmes of up to 16 weeks, giving individuals the opportunity to build up tech skills and fast-track to an interview with an employer.

They are being developed by the UK Government as part of the Lifetime Skills Guarantee and Plan for Jobs, in partnership with employers, providers and local authorities, to help people develop the skills that are in demand in their local area and get a better job.

The Open University are offering two Skills Bootcamps starting Autumn 2021: DevNetSkills by The Open University and DataSkills by The Open University.

Each will develop in-demand technical skillsets and offer careers and employability support to equip individuals with the skills they need to move into a new digital job with a new or existing employer.

If you are aged over 19 years of age and looking for a pathway to a digital job or if you are an employer looking to grow and diversify your digital talent pool or upskill existing employees into new digital roles, then a Skills Bootcamp by The Open University could be for you.
