Devon and Cornwall are set to receive a much-needed boost to IT talent with the launch of 2 IT Skills Bootcamps

In an effort to get the South-West region ‘tech ready’, BIT Training is about to open its latest Skills for Life IT Skills Bootcamp, offering 24 candidates some of the best IT training available across Devon and Cornwall.

The course, which is due to start on 5th June, will deliver a raft of highly trained and market-ready individuals into a South-West jobs market that badly needs high calibre IT skills and technical knowhow. Best of all these candidates come with no associated recruitment fees once the course is completed.

Open to people aged 19+ who are residents in either Devon or Cornwall, these IT Skills Bootcamps combine learning and real-world experience. The course is delivered by established, industry experts and they’re about as far removed from ‘tickbox learning’ as is possible and it means that all candidates exit the course with CompTIA, ITIL ® , and CertNexus certifications.

The biggest single issue facing the IT industry today is that there are significant skills gaps that desperately need to be filled and the only threat to the sector is that ‘demand’ is outstripped by ‘supply’. One region that suffers more than most is the South-West with companies across Devon and Cornwall searching for qualified talent to fill positions.

Commenting on the availability of the soon-to-be qualified candidates, James Pickard of BIT Training, said: “BIT Training continue to support the Skills for Life Bootcamp initiative which helps develop individuals that are employed, underemployed or unemployed, preparing them for a career in IT in the South-West region. The IT sector continues to grow rapidly in the UK and there is a high demand for skilled workers in these fields. This initiative will help to ensure that Devon and Cornwall have the skilled workforce it needs to compete in the global economy.”
