Slide Skills Bootcamps

In Rail

Looking for a job that’s well-paid and in-demand? The UK needs hundreds of rail engineers, and urgently. Our 6-week Skills Bootcamps in Birmingham and Doncaster give you a free, fast-track route into an interview with a rail employer - with successful candidates having the opportunity to join an accelerated apprenticeship!

From October 2022, we will be running Skills Bootcamps in Rail at our Birmingham and Doncaster campuses. Fully funded by the Department for Education and FREE for all learners, the Skills Bootcamps run for 6 weeks and are a mixture of classroom-based lectures and online learning.

The Skills Bootcamps are for all adults aged 19 or over who are either in work, self-employed, recently unemployed or returning to work after a break.
