Skills Bootcamp in Digital

Skills Bootcamp in Digital is a new set of digital training courses designed to help you to build sector specific skills and fast track to a guaranteed interview with a local digital employer at the end of the course.

The bootcamp will be delivered by a collective made up of Baltic Training, Tyne Coast College (TyneMet College and South Tyneside College), Education Partnership North East, Gateshead College, Newcastle College Group, New College Durham and Sunderland Software City.

Interviews are being offered by a range of digital employers including Virgin Money, Mitsubishi Chemicals, Opencast Software, Accenture and Hedgehog Lab.

Who are they for?
The courses are offered at intermediate and advanced level, so you will need to have a good level of digital skills already. See each course description for more information.

How much do they cost?
The training is free if you meet the following criteria:

  • Aged over 19 years of age
  • Resident in the UK and legally entitled to work in the UK
  • Working, recently unemployed within the last 12 months or looking for work e.g. coming back into the workforce after a career break

How long do they last?
Courses are delivered on a full and part time basis which means a course could last between two and 8 weeks. Face to face and virtual learning is available. We’ll let you know more when you enquire.

I’m an employer, can I access the training?
Yes. The Skills Bootcamp in Digital is a great way to build sector specific skills in your workforce. Plus, you only need to pay a 30% contribution towards the cost of this training. This is fantastic value for money with courses ranging from only £575 to £725.

Got a question?

What financial support is available for adults?

Many of our part-time courses are free for individuals who are eligible.

For full details of eligibility criteria, visit our finance page.

I haven’t studied in a long time but want to go to university, what can I do?

We offer a pre access to HE course, which is ideal if you want to return to college to develop your basic academic skills in preparation for an Access to HE course, and subsequent university entry.

The course will help you to develop maths and English skills as well as developing your personal study skills and knowledge. For more info visit our Access to HE course page.

Can I study part time?


Most of our adult courses are part time with evening and day time classes so you can choose an option that best suits you.

When do adult courses start?

Majority of our adult courses start in September.

However, we have various start dates across the year you can start immediately or book your space for later.

Do you have a nursery onsite?

For students who have children, we have an on-campus nursery ran by fully-trained, experienced staff.

Can I study Higher Education at college?


Usually associated with going to University, not many people realise you can also study Higher Education at college – and it can often be the best route. Studying HE at college comes with a wide range of benefits – and the same University standard qualification.
