Training organisation BCTG has won a second package of government funding towards a boot camp supporting over 250 people with digital training
The award of £845,000 will funding digital training to run until 31 March 2022. BCTG is working with delivery partners such as Birmingham-based Brit Asia and Creative Alliance, Walsall-based Studio School and Wolverhampton-based Learnplay Foundation.
Chris Luty, chief executive at BCTG, said: “We’re thrilled to have won our second funding package to provide Skills Boot Camps that will deliver essential digital training and testing for people and then match them to job vacancies.
“This will enable us to help people to access a range of courses that include topics such as the fundamentals behind marketing, delivering marketing campaigns, digital and social media strategies.
“As a result, we will help to fill the gap in digital shortages and enable businesses to grow faster and further than ever before, locally and nationally, across the internet.”
The bootcamps are being delivered as part of the Lifetime Skills Guarantee and Plan for Jobs initiatives
