Skills Bootcamps

Skills Bootcamps – part of the Government’s Lifetime Skills Guarantee, helping everyone gain skills for life.

The Skills Bootcamps are free, flexible courses, giving people the opportunity to build up sector-specific skills and fast-track to an interview with a local employer.

Skills Bootcamps are funded by the Department for Education and are an integral part of the Government’s Skills for Life strategy. The York & North Yorkshire Local Enterprise Partnership supports the roll out of Skills Bootcamps across the entire region it serves.

Places are limited and subject to eligibility and applicants must be able to commit to completing the programme. For more information, call 01756 797 266 or complete our enquiry form.

Skills Bootcamps in the Green Skills Sector

Tyro Training, through provision of their Skills Bootcamps in the Green Skills Sector, is proud to be part of a new publication promoting unique skills to the North Yorkshire region alongside other partners of the York and North Yorkshire Local Skills Improvement Plan (LSIP).  

The Local Skills Improvement Fund (LSIF) is a government initiative aiming to provide resources to support activity responding to the Local Skills Partnership priorities. 

Businesses that have participated in Skills Bootcamps at Tyro Training have seen increased staff performance, a more flexible workforce, lowered insurance premiums, and the ability to compete with larger organisations when bidding for contracts. Individuals who have undertaken Bootcamps have gained extra skills and qualifications, allowing them to diversify or expand their existing businesses. 

To find out more about our involvement in the LSIF project see the booklet below:

    How do I book onto a Tyro Training course?

    There are a number of different ways in which you are able to book onto one of our training courses:

    Book on the website

    The easiest way book onto one of our training courses is to enrol right here. Simply select the required dates on the course you would like to attend and click on ‘Enrol’ to add the course to your basket. When you are ready to checkout, complete the required fields and make a payment. A Booking Confirmation will be sent to you within 72 hours.

    Book over the phone

    If you have any questions about whether you are booking onto the right training course, give us a call. We can answer your questions before taking you through the telephone booking process.

    Book by email

    For times when booking by phone is not convenient, we advise that you send us an email stating the name of the course you wish to book onto and the date you wish to attend. Once we receive this a member of our team will get back to you with a Booking Confirmation and may reply or give you a ring (if you have provided your details) if there is any information that needs clarifying urgently.

    Book at the Tyro Training Centre

    Of course, we also offer the good old fashioned way of booking by visiting the Tyro Training centre and enquiring about booking at our front desk. A member of the Business Development team will then be able to advise you about the training and book you onto a course.

    How do I pay for my course?

    Payment is requested upon booking. You can make secure card payments on the website or over the phone by calling the Tyro Training Centre. Alternatively cheque or cash payments can be made at the Tyro Training Centre. It may be possible to arrange for invoices for training, we may make credit checks prior to agreement – please discuss upon booking.

    Will my course run? What happens if my courses gets cancelled?

    We always do our utmost to ensure all of our courses run as scheduled. However, occasionally there may be circumstances where a course needs to be cancelled.

    If the course that you are due to attend is cancelled, a member of our team will get in touch with you to inform you and we will do our best to arrange for you to attend another date for the course that is most convenient to you.

    How long do I have to wait for my results/certificate?

    The delay on receiving your results / certificates will depend on the awarding body responsible. Here are some outlines on expected waiting times:

    • Tyro Training Certificate – Certificates will be presented to delegates at the end of the course. Where this is not possible, certificates will be sent by post to the named learner at the address of the person who made the booking within 2 weeks. E-Certificates are also available.
    • HABC (Highfield) – Level 2 HABC certificates generally take 2-3 weeks to arrive with you, Level 3 certificates sometimes take a little bit longer and can be expected to arrive within 2-6 weeks.
    • ILM (Institute of Leadership & Management) – It can take between 4-6 weeks from the date of the submission of your assignment to receive your results and certificate from ILM.
    Which First Aid course do I need to attend?

    Because the First Aid course that you require is dependent on the circumstances within your workplace, we are not allowed to directly advise which course it is that you should be attending. The First Aid section of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) website has all the information you need to help you determine which First Aid course you require.

    The HSE website breaks it down for you so that you know your role whether you are an employer, an employee or the designated first aider.

    Do I need to do a Level 2 qualification before a Level 3?

    For some courses you will be able to study the level appropriate to your job role and experience, which ,may mean you can complete a level 3 qualification before achieving a level 2. However some other courses require a prerequisite to be achieved before you can progress onto a higher level qualification. These vary across courses and in order to understand which applies to the course specific to your interest, a member of our team will be able to help.
