FAQs


1. Eligible Regions

Based on the bids that we have won, we currently deliver our Skills Bootcamps to the below regions:

  • Greater Manchester
  • London
  • North East
  • North West
  • West Midlands

As we grow in popularity and win more bids, this is likely to increase.

If you would like to enquire about private delivery please email employer@we-are-digital.co.uk

2. How much does it cost the learner to be enrolled onto the course?

Our Skills Bootcamps are fully funded by the Department for Education (DfE) or Local Authority funder.

Our courses are a part of the larger Government project ‘Skills for Life’ so the intention is to help and support you get back into or begin work.

Businesses looking to upskill their workforce (defined as someone directly employed by the employer, not a sub-contractor, or freelance) onto a bootcamp, will be expected to pay 30% of training costs.

This reduces to 10% if the employer is a small or medium enterprise (SME) with 250 or less employees. There is no cost to individuals who are not accessing the training through their employer.

3. How will Employer Progression work?

If you are looking to recruit one or more of our highly talented candidates, who are raring to begin their new careers, the process will be as follows:

Initial Contact: Our team will liaise with your recruitment contact or department to schedule interviews for your vacancies which are at the right level for our graduating learners.

We also have the support of Careers advisors in all the regions we operate in, who will support our candidates into work and liaise with you as the employer, dependent on the opportunities you have available.

Interviewing our Candidates: We recommend using a group assessment/ interview day for up to 5-10 graduates at a time (if you have a minimum of 1-5 open roles available). This will save your staff time, through quick-fire interviews and assessments taking place on a day scheduled with you. We can run as many of these as you like.

We are also happy for interviews and Assessment days to be held remotely and we will utilise a system, integrated with your processes, to record that you are seeing candidates from our Skills Bootcamps.

Feedback: Whether our candidates were or were not successful during the interview with you as an Employer, we would really appreciate your feedback. From there we will conduct a next steps and if you would like to have input on the employment delivery of our courses please email  employer@we-are-digital.co.uk

Dependent on the Skills Bootcamp you are interested in referring someone to, we currently offer 10 courses in Data Analytics, Digital Marketing, IT Technical Sales and Telecoms Field Operations.

“It is definitely a change from what I am used to but the course pretty much covered everything that I am currently doing in this role. And I am able to do these day-to-day tasks by myself. I felt the course was flexible enough and I was still able to complete the course even though I had the challenge of looking after a newborn”.

“The reason why I managed to do it, is because I found it really interesting and I was committed to it. It’s believing in yourself as well. I'm the best at self-doubt. I still can't believe that I managed to pass it.”

"I would strongly encourage anyone who is thinking about starting this Digital Marketing Course to go ahead and do it. You learn so much on the course and you don’t even need digital marketing experience to apply. To get the most out of the course, I would say that you should actively take part in the discussions that happen in the sessions"
