Bootcamp Skills Mentors will support learners throughout their entire Bootcamp journey, from initial application, acting as a mentor/sounding board through the various stages of training and assisting them to arrange an interview and hopefully a successful job outcome with prospective employers.

  • Assisting learners with the booking of training courses and workshops 
  • Handling digital tachograph card applications
