Digital Skills for the Workplace, a free 12-week digital boot camp, will be made available across the Liverpool city region. The initiative is part of a Government programme and is open for adults who are considering returning to the workforce or starting a career in tech.
The scheme was developed locally by the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority in partnership with local employers. It is fully funded by the Department for Education. Participants who have completed the programme will have the opportunity of an employer interview and support to apply for relevant jobs.
teve Rotheram, Metro Mayor of the Liverpool City Region, said: “Even before the coronavirus struck, investing in digital skills was really important but these past few months have only made it an even bigger priority.
“The economic shock of the pandemic will continue to be felt for a long time to come and will radically change the nature of work. We know that local employers are already crying out for people with these skills and making sure that our people have them will help them find work and succeed both now and in the future.”
