/Frequently asked questions
It’s true, there are other companies out there offering to teach you tech skills. But these boot camps are often aimed at graduates or those already at uni. We’re different because our courses are specifically designed to give younger adults – aged 15-19 – a head start.
Taught by industry experts and leading tech entrepreneurs, you’ll study era-defining subjects like coding and data analytics. The main emphasis is on learning through application as you collaborate in small groups during lessons, and spend time working individually on your project to build a professional-standard tech portfolio. During your course you’ll develop sought-after technical skills, while honing more general, personal skills and attributes such as team-working, problem-solving and building a resilient, adaptable mindset.
Skills Gap experiences are for young adults aged 15 to 19. They’re specifically designed for anyone who’s just finished (or is about to finish) their A-levels and wants to spend some time gaining new skills and experiences before moving onto uni or employment.
Skills Gap is a not-for-profit careers accelerator that runs insightful workshops for young people to give them a competitive edge in their future studies and career. We offer a range of intensive workshops designed specifically for 15-19-year-olds and delivered to small groups by experienced industry experts.

“The workshop was engaging thanks to a passionate instructor. A range of potential career paths were opened up me and I was inspired to start taking steps to build the key skills that I'd learnt would be important. Getting the chance to have my questions answered at the Q&A session was also a great learning experience.”
