Access free of charge talent with Data and Cloud skills

Skillsoft GKA bootcamp graduates pre-trained in Microsoft Azure and looking for employment from March 2023 onwards

The City of London has a rapidly escalating need for IT Technical Skills especially in the areas of Cloud and Data Analytics. 

As a result we have teamed up with the Greater London Authority (GLA) to deliver a series of  Microsoft Azure skills bootcamps (Cloud and Data focused) free of charge to high potential learners who are keen to transfer into the world of IT.

This talent pool will be trained and available from late March and will have been trained by Skillsoft Global Knowledge – the world’s largest IT Technical training provider.  They will then be available for tech job roles in and around the London area at no recruitment cost to you. 

You have the option to bring them in as a full-time employee or indeed bring them in as an accelerated apprentice where we will train them in advanced Cloud and Data skills - funded through the Government’s apprenticeship levy/non-levy schemes.

We are now engaging with employers to enable early access to this exciting talent pool – there is no obligation to offer employment – all we ask is that you interview them for a vacancy you may have allowing you the option to select the best of those entrants looking to get into an IT career.

Skills Bootcamps:

• The £18m Skills Bootcamps for Londoners programme will help Londoners into good jobs in the capital’s key sectors. The programme is part of the Department for Education’s Lifetime Skills Guarantee: helping everyone gain skills for life, and it is overseen by the Mayor of London.

• The programme is supporting Londoners to get the skills they need to fill vacancies in London’s digital, green, creative, hospitality, health and social care, professional services (including Finance), technical (engineering and manufacturing), and logistics sectors.

• The programme will deliver short, flexible training programmes lasting up to 16 weeks, with a guaranteed interview, to help Londoners gain ‘in demand’ skills and quickly move into good work in priority sectors.

• We expect employers to work closely with training providers to shape Skills Bootcamps around their recruitment needs. We strive to build a better London for everyone and create a safer, fairer, greener and more prosperous city for all Londoners.
