Apprentify has won a contract worth approximately
£250,000 with the West Yorkshire Combined Authority (WYCA) to deliver Digital
Skills Bootcamps to learners across the region.
This contract follows a successful year for Apprentify,
having been awarded an Outstanding rating in all areas in a recent Ofsted review. Apprentify are delighted to be delivering these bootcamps as part of
West Yorkshire Combined Authority’s Skills for Growth training scheme.
The fully funded courses delivered by Apprentify will give people
the opportunity to learn digital skills at a time where there is high demand
for experienced tech talent. These six-week bootcamps will teach them about
Search Engine Optimisation, a specialist branch of digital marketing. The partnership
will provide a minimum of 75 places to people aged 19 years and over living across
Bradford, Calderdale, Kirklees, Leeds and Wakefield.
Jonathan Fitchew, CEO of Apprentify said
Digital bootcamps are a great opportunity for people to build confidence and skills in subjects that will help them progress in their careers, without committing to long-term schooling. They also provide a great pipeline of talent for employers in the local area who are struggling to find experienced digital marketers. We are pleased to be working with WYCA of part of their wider initiative to reinvigorate businesses in the county.
