What is the Skills Bootcamp in Web Development?

The Skills Bootcamp in Web Development will equip learners with the practical and technical knowledge of web design, to include how to define, design, and build a website through HTML, CSS, JavaScript and SVG’s.

We have worked closely with employers to create this highly interactive, practical and creative Skills Bootcamp which develops knowledge and skills needed within the digital sector. As part of this co-design employers are providing marketing and web design briefs to deliver real life industry campaign experience for the participants. This interactive programme uses a combination of tutor led workshops, 1:1 coaching and support sessions, e-learning content and self study as well as promotion collaborative peer to peer engagement.
