Welcome to the Electronic Skills Programme !

Congratulations and welcome on board! We are excited that you will be joining us on our Skills Bootcamp in Electech (Electronics) and are looking forward to getting to know you over the next few months. We want to make this a really beneficial learning experience for you and hope that you will get to love electronics as much as we do! We now want to get you ready for the upcoming workshops with a short survey and registered on our learn platform !

Why More Questions ?

In order to help support and understand our participants journey through the bootcamp, we ask questions along the way to help you get the most out of the bootcamp. The registration survey is not assessed or scored, will take around 10 minutes and has questions on your familiarisation with the electronics industry, your approach to learning, your IT setup and emergency contact details. These questions are to help our tutors get to know you better ! Once you have sent this information you can proceed to our Learn platform to complete registration.

    If you have any concerns with IT ability and access to equipment, or accessibility difficulties please do not hesitate to talk to us about this and we will do our best to help.


    We are currently gauging interest for some extra activities and services. In our previous bootcamps we discovered that participants wanted to speak to industry mentors 1-to-1, work together and support each other in learning activities

    Would you be interested in being assigned an industry mentor ? Mentors are currently working in industry and can help provide useful career tips

    Would you be interested in getting together with other bootcamp participants for a face to face meet and greet in Lancaster?

    (if yes/maybe please indicate days of week which are usually convenient)

    Would you be interested in becoming a “participant helper”. If you feel confident and capable Tech Lancaster will give you extra support to help others learn on the programme which is recorded on your completion certificate and counts towards professional development.
