How has the Skills Bootcamp been designed/created with employer input?
A workshop is intended in early/mid September to finalise content of the curriculum and agree the most flexible delivery mode possible. Employers will be presented with current thinking (both in terms of content and delivery) and organised into groups for discussions. The outcomes of the workshop will inform the design of the curriculum, involvement of employers in the delivery and progress monitoring as well as the most suitable delivery mode.
