York & North Yorkshire LEP are looking to recruit a research agency to work with them on evaluating a ground breaking skills programme.
York & North Yorkshire LEP (Y&NY LEP) is about to launch a ground breaking programme of Skills Bootcamps across the area. Working with a range of specialist providers and leading employers, they will be delivering over the next 10 months up to 25 Bootcamps to support over 1000 local residents aged 19 + develop higher level skills across a range of specialisms including in advanced manufacturing, electronics, digital, green construction and natural protection, logistics and business analysis.
The programme will be a unique opportunity to trigger a step change in delivering the higher-level skills needed to transition to a dynamic low carbon economy and to improve the region’s productivity and growth.
The Y&NY LEP is now inviting organisations with an in-depth understanding of the York and North Yorkshire business and skills landscape and a track record of research in these areas to express their interest in undertaking a local evaluation of our Bootcamp programme for 22-23.
The evaluation will be critical in helping shape the Y&NY LEP’s plans for future Bootcamp or similar successor higher level skills provision in York and North Yorkshire.
Interested organisations should e-mail email@example.com for a copy of the full Specification and application, stating in the e-mail in no more than 100 words why this opportunity may be of interest.
