A brand new FREE online Skills Bootcamp from Birmingham City University provides skills and knowledge in Machine Learning, Cybersecurity & Internet of Things technologies.

According to recent research, 80% of manufacturers have identified workforce skills gaps in digital technologies, particularly in understanding, managing and securing data.

Knowledge of machine learning, cybersecurity & Internet of Things technologies is highly transferable and very much in demand, not only in manufacturing but in other sectors including energy, transport and healthcare.

With the accelerated growth in this sector, professionals with the requisite skills, knowledge and digital literacy are highly valued by employers.

This brand-new Skills Bootcamp is FREE both for eligible self-referring employees who wish to progress careers within their own organisations and also to unemployed learners requiring additional skills with which to return to the job market.

If you are an employer, this intensive, short-term training course presents a high-value opportunity to upskill one or more of your employees in the key areas of cybersecurity and machine learning, with the vast majority of the cost being contributed by the Department of Education.

Starting week commencing 6th February and delivered entirely online - two sessions per week over an 8-week period - the Skills Bootcamp will also provide the opportunity to gain additional professional accreditations such as Microsoft certification.

Upon completion of the course, every graduate will be awarded an official BCU certificate of Achievement to recognise their accomplishment and with which to evidence their skills to current and future employers.

To be eligible, learners must simply be 30 years old or younger and reside in the area served by West Midlands Combined Authority. See map for details.

This is a fantastic opportunity. Places are limited, so don’t miss out! For more details and to request an application form, click on this link.
