BRADFORD, Shipley and Keighley are amongst colleges across the region offering free career-enhancing (re)boot courses.
The (re)boot project, launched by the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP), offers fully-funded courses ranging from Electrical Installation to Digital Marketing and Analytics.
The project was initially aimed at individuals who were in work and wanted to progress or change career into digital, construction or engineering roles.
However, as Covid-19 impacted on the UK’s workforce, the colleges also signed up those on furlough and/or at risk of redundancy because of the pandemic.
Linda O’Donnell, Director of Business Development at Shipley College, said: “At Shipley College, we have worked really hard to adjust both our delivery methods to online learning, and the type of course needed to meet the demands of the region.
“Digital skills were in high demand before the pandemic, but that demand has escalated even more in the last year. We are trying to support people who wish to pursue a career with the skills that they need to succeed in 2021 and the courses have been very popular.”
