Everything You Need to Know About Our Skills Bootcamp in Digital

NCH London | August 6, 2021

Searching for a way to get into digital but don’t know how? Wanting to improve your digital skills for your current role? Well, look no further.

In partnership with ServiceNow and The Prince’s Trust, New College of the Humanities are running a free-to-the-participant Skills Bootcamp in Digital with a guaranteed job interview upon successful completion.

About the Skills Bootcamp

Skills bootcamps are 16-week courses that are developed in partnership with employers and providers, to help people develop skills that are in demand and get a better job. NCH have designed this bootcamp to give everyone the chance to develop sector specific skills and, if searching for a new job, fast track them to a job interview with a local employer.

The Skills Bootcamp will be fully online using a blend of asynchronous, tutor-guided learning and synchronous, small group teaching. During the Skills Bootcamp you will work to complete two 15-credit university level courses, which are designed to provide the foundation for a full degree or degree apprenticeship, as well as completing training in ServiceNow.

The course start dates are staggered, applicants will be assigned to start on either Monday 20 September, Monday 27 September, Monday 4 October, or Monday 11 October.

What do I get out of it?

The Skills Bootcamp is designed to help you achieve success in your digital career. To ensure this, NCH have developed a dedicated programme tailored to your individual needs.

You will benefit from regular sessions with a dedicated Learning Advisor, high-quality teaching from experienced tutors, a tailored employability package, a job interview with a sector-relevant employer, along with much more.
