At City & Guilds Training – Electrical, we are aware of the closure of Options Skills (an Electrical training provider) and the adverse effect this closure has had on learners, who now must find alternative means to complete their electrical training and achieve qualifications.

While we may not be able to support all impacted learners, we hope that current and upcoming Skills Bootcamp packages may be a viable and suitable alternative for some learners to complete their training and qualification(s). Learner eligibility applies in accordance with DfE rules.

At City & Guilds Training we offer a range of government funded Skills Bootcamp packages designed to support learners to learn, develop and practice the skills required for employment and/or career progression in the electrotechnology sector.

Learners can contact City & Guilds Training on 0800 856 4448 and our advisors will be delighted to discuss what funded options may be available.

About Skills Bootcamps

As part of the Lifetime Skills Guarantee, the Government has invested into a series of ‘Skills for Life’ Bootcamps, to provide a range of flexible training options targeting specific industries and aimed at equipping individuals with necessary skills for working in sectors with high job demand, providing learners with job-ready skills.

Skills Bootcamps offer free, flexible courses of up to 16 weeks. They are available for adults aged 19 or over who are either in work or recently unemployed and live in England. They give people the opportunity to build up sector-specific skills and fast-track to an interview with a local employer.

Eligibility to enrol on a Skills Bootcamp depends on factors including age, employment status, and residency status.
