Computer Science: 12 week free boot camp

We are offering fully funded placements for our Skills Bootcamp in Computer Science. Skills Bootcamps – part of the Government’s Lifetime Skills Guarantee and Plan for Jobs – are flexible courses of up to 16 weeks, giving people the opportunity to build up sector-specific skills and fast-track to an interview with a local employer.

Our Skills Bootcamp is truly shaped by business. You’ll learn essential knowledge that can’t be found in a textbook – like problem solving, communication skills and working in a team, as well as the key technical and commercial skills you need to land a great career in tech.
