West Yorkshire Consortium of Colleges


COVID-19: Please continue to enquire about the opportunities within the [re]boot project. Despite the Coronavirus pandemic, our training providers are working hard to find ways to deliver training as part of this WYCC/ESF project. Some standard methods of delivery and scheduled training dates will be disrupted during this time, but we will put you in touch with the training provider who can discuss dates, delivery method and content.

[re]boot offers individuals the chance to upskill, re-skill and gain employability and sector specific skills, qualifications and training within the Digital, Creative (Production Skills), Engineering and Construction sectors.


This project supports Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership’s (LEP) all-age careers and inspiration campaign, #futuregoals, by providing relevant content and practical courses to address the skills shortages in our region.

Who is [re]boot for?

[re]boot will benefit individuals aged 18 and over to meet their full potential and enter roles in key growth sectors across Leeds City Region and will actively target:

  • Individuals in work
  • Graduates who are underemployed or under-utilised and therefore disadvantaged in the labour market
  • Individuals who are returning to the labour market after a period of absence
  • People considering a career change

[re]boot will help to improve the overall skill level of the workforce by enabling individuals who are typically marginalised from accessing higher level skills. Training will be designed to drive progression, in particular from Levels 2 to 4 providing an essential springboard for participants looking to progress in priority sectors.

The fully-funded (free) short training courses will help to meet the immediate demand from employers for specific sector skills, engaging with industry to help shape course content.

Project Impact
  • Provide a larger talent pool in the key growth sectors in Leeds City Region.
  • Increase the skill levels from the existing level to the next level up and encourage more progression into higher level employment.
  • Train individuals in their pursuit of careers in Digital, Creative (Production Skills), Engineering and Construction sectors.
  • Develop individuals who, upon completion, are ready to progress in sector occupations as competent sector-specific professionals.
