Start of year guide

We have created a start of year checklist so new and returning students, parents and carers can find all the information needed to make the start of term as seamless as possible. You can find this checklist and other important information in the Start of Year Guide.

Skills Bootcamps

Truro and Penwith College has been awarded contracts to deliver Skills Bootcamps for residents of Cornwall and Devon across a range of subjects and industry sectors.

What are Skills Bootcamps?

Skills Bootcamps are flexible courses of up to sixteen weeks, which offer eligible adults aged 19 and over the unique opportunity to access funded training, which culminates in either a guaranteed job interview offer for their chosen occupation or support with progressing their career or business. These short courses are FREE for individuals looking to upskill or change career and the Department for Education will cover 90% of the training costs for SME employers and 70% for large employers who want to enrol their staff onto a Skills Bootcamp.

Skills Bootcamps are part of the Government’s Lifetime Skills Guarantee, helping everyone gain skills for life, and are funded by the National Skills Fund to develop and deliver Skills Bootcamps in economic priority sectors where there are identified skills gaps.

For further details regarding Truro and Penwith College’s programme please e-mail or go to for information about the full range of Skills Bootcamps available across Cornwall and Devon.
