Meet Steph Hodgson, Senior Account Manager – Skills Bootcamps

28 Jun 2024

Skills Bootcamps are delivered across various sectors where it has been identified there are skills shortages by employers. They are designed for people aged 19+ and as a result learners already have many transferable skills and previous experience.

Learners that enrol on one of the Skills Bootcamp programmes do so because they want to, they have an interest in their chosen sector and are excited to learn more, this is what makes them a great choice for employers looking to plug a skills gap and recruit talented staff.

Learners aren’t always unemployed, many are changing career, self-employed, already employed but looking to upskill, on a career break, but the one thing they all have in common is that they are passionate, dedicated and willing to give up their own time to come and complete a Skills Bootcamp.

Below we learn about what Steph’s role entails working on our Education and Skills programme:

“Making a positive difference, inspiring our learners, and helping them achieve positive outcomes are the best part of my job. I love seeing our students follow their dreams and aspirations, and if I can contribute even a little to that, then everything I do is worth it just to see this.”

Steph has been with GC Education and Skills coming up to almost two years, first starting in 2022. Since then, she has moved from working on apprenticeships to become part of Skills Bootcamps.

Steph manages the Employability Team comprising of tutors who deliver sessions as part of the Skills Bootcamp programme honing learner’s skills and helping learners to become job ready, teaching them confidence building skills, helping with CV’s and LinkedIn profiles, all alongside their course programme day-to-day learning.

Steph and her team work closely with employers to identify their skills gaps within their organisation and introducing them to our graduate learners looking out for their next role. In addition. Steph and her team work at increasing visibility and knowledge surrounding the skills bootcamp talent available to support positive outcomes for our graduates.
