This publication provides a summary of learner starts by participants who started a funded Skills Bootcamp during the financial year 2021-22.
Data were collected by the Department from Skills Bootcamps providers. Providers are required to report on learner starts, completions and outcomes after completing a Skills Bootcamp.
Data were returned from each of the Skills Bootcamp providers. The total estimated number of starts was 16,120. This figure represents 11,380 starts on Skills Bootcamps excluding HGV driving, and 4,740 starts on HGV driving Skills Bootcamps. This breakdown is provided to enable direct comparison with future statistical releases for learner completions and outcomes by participants who started a funded Skills Bootcamp during the financial year 2021-22, which will be published in due course. Due to delays in HGV testing, completions and outcomes for participants undertaking Skills Bootcamps excluding HGV driving will be published at an earlier date than for HGV driving Skills Bootcamps.
Starts were defined by identifying records for each Skills Bootcamp for which a valid start date between 01/04/2021 and 31/03/2022 was recorded, along with a date when the provider received their first payment.
One person can enrol on more than one Skills Bootcamp. A start is an instance of training, not the number of individuals trained.
