Free boot camps from Weston College

Weston has been selected, via the Institutes of Technology, to deliver Digital Skills Bootcamps as part of the Government’s Plan for Jobs commitment.

  • Weston College

These are 12-week courses in Cloud Services and Cloud Data Engineering and are available free of charge to individuals living in the West of England, or seeking employment/planning to move to work with employers located in the West of England.  The courses will provide Microsoft Azure certification and will require one day, day release each week with self-guided learning throughout the week.

For employers they aim to provide signposting to any companies interested in interviewing the candidates at the end of the programme. This is also open to employers who wish to upskill their staff.  Employers are asked to pay 30% of the per-person training cost (ie. c£800) whilst the DfE are paying 70% of the cost (individual applicants get 100% funding). The boot camps are aiming to encourage 50% females into this programme and primarily support SME employers in the West of England.

Places are limited so they are encouraging people to register their interest as soon as possible.  Courses will run in October (possibly November), and again in January. All details can be found here.
