Bootcamps - Information for Employers

Training designed to boost your business.

Derwent Training, in partnership with York & North Yorkshire LEP, is offering training for employers which is financially supported by the Government.  This training is nationally called Bootcamps.

We are offering 3 specially designed Bootcamps to support skills and knowledge development in engineering and manufacturing. Learners must be aged 19 years and above. Employers pay either 10 or 30% of the cost depending on the size of their business. The Government pays the rest. So, it is highly subsidised. Learners will not only receive the training but have access to information, advice, and guidance as part of a wrap-around offer.

Mechatronics engineers use a combination of mechanical, electrical, computer and software skills to work with smart technologies. This bootcamp focuses on a single element of PLCs.

This course is suitable for those in industry with basic either basic or no knowledge of this area who wish to upskill their techniques.

Accelerated Pathway to Level 4

The programme will focus on lean techniques focusing on a systematic approach to minimizing waste in engineering processes.  

The course will allow a learner to evidence skills, knowledge, and behaviours to aid high performance working (HPW), specifically approaches to work organisation. Learners may progress to the Higher Apprenticeship afterwards, where completion of this Bootcamp will reduce the cost of that Apprenticeship.
