Cost

Skills Bootcamps are fully funded for learners (by the Department for Education).

If a learner is unemployed, they can apply for a Skills Bootcamp if they meet the eligibility criteria, at no cost to them.

If a learner is working, and wants to reskill into a digital role, they do not need to be sponsored their employer to take part in a bootcamp.

If a learner is working in a digital role and applies to upskill, their employer may have to pay a small portion of the course fee.

  • If the employer’s business is a small-to-medium sized enterprise (SME) with less than 250 employees, they pay only 10% of the cost of the course.
  • If the employer is a larger business, with 250 or more employees, they pay only 30% of the cost of the course.
