New bootcamp set to open in Hull aimed at leading people into higher paying and sustainable jobs
After securing over £2 million in support from the Government, Hull Training and Adult Education (HTAE) is aiming to provide training that will lead to guaranteed interviews for higher paid jobs. Of this funding allocation, £222,425 has been committed to the delivery of Skills Bootcamps in HGV and Highways Maintenance and Groundworks.
Cllr Linda Tock, Hull City Council’s portfolio holder with responsibility for Hull Training, said: “It is great news that work can begin on an additional four Skills Bootcamps.
“We have already seen the benefits that they have had, helping candidates to achieve necessary skills, as well as filling important vacancies for local businesses.
“We appreciate the funding that has come from the government once again, allowing HTAE to provide further opportunities.”
HTAE is working with other providers on further opportunities to use the remaining funds. The bootcamps will be delivered by one or more service providers the project seeks to link in with potential employers. So far, 21 projects have been awarded funding, ranging from telecommunications to joinery and construction.
The next round of projects will start on the 1 August 2023 and run until 31 March 2024. HTAE will lead and administer these new contracts on behalf of Hull & East Yorkshire Local Enterprise Partnership.
