Skills Bootcamps offer free, flexible courses of up to 16 weeks for adults aged 19 or over and who are either in work or recently unemployed. Some Skills Bootcamps have additional eligibility criterias. They give people the opportunity to build up sector-specific skills and fast-track to an interview with a local employer. Skills Bootcamps in HGV driving are due to be added to the list in November.

The Department for Education recently announced investment of up to £10m to create new Skills Bootcamps to train up to 5,000 people to become HGV drivers. People can also train through courses accessed locally and funded by the Government’s Adult Education Budget (AEB). The move will help tackle skills shortages and support more people to launch new careers within the logistics sector.
