Engineering construction skills bootcamp
The engineering construction skills bootcamp at South Devon College is intended to provide opportunities for those struggling to find employment after leaving university. It could also encourage people who may be interested in pursuing changes in careers.
In November 2021, a skills bootcamp for people interested in a career in the engineering construction industry will be introduced at South Devon College. It is part of the Government’s Lifetime Skills Guarantee and Plan for Jobs.
 Course overview
The programme at South Devon College has been developed in partnership with Willmott Dixon, Midas, BAM Nutall and Keir Construction. Participants will benefit from continuous formative assessment with one of the four employers through employer hubs.
The flexible course of up to four weeks gives participants the opportunity to build up sector specific skills and fast track them to an interview with a local employer.
