Through our free, online training programmes, adults of all ages—whether unemployed, underemployed, or needing to learn new skills—can connect to the training, support, and jobs to change their path. 

We deliver training programmes in six regions across the UK and Ireland: London, Yorkshire, West Midlands, Greater Manchester, Edinburgh and Dublin. 

Our programmes span technology, green energy and healthcare, and have one thing in common – they launch our graduates’ careers in exciting, fast-growing. 

As a Generation learner, you’ll receive expert instruction on your chosen programme, dedicated mentoring to support your development and employability support to boost your confidence entering the workforce. If you need a laptop or wifi to access the programme, we’ll provide that too.

Tech training for parents and carers in London 

We’re working hard to understand the barriers to participating in our boot-camps faced by parents and carers and we’re excited to be offering our first boot-camp designed specifically to support parents and carers later this year. 

Launching on 26th September for London residents, our Cloud Practitioner boot-camp provides the ideal springboard for anyone looking to get into the tech industry. 

Designed in collaboration with Amazon Web Services, the Cloud boot-camp is a free, part-time, 16-week programme that will teach you the industry skills required and then connect you to hiring employers for job interviews. 

This part-time skills boot-camp is designed to fit around your life and commitments without the need for lots of extra independent study – for this reason, we enthusiastically encourage parents and people with dependants to apply. 

Upskilling your career can be challenging when you have parental responsibilities. As part of our mission to support those facing barriers to employment into meaningful career paths, we are providing on-course support for parents to make it easier for you to re-start your career journey. 

Our Cloud programme in London offers: 

  • Work from home boot-camp, allowing you to join an engaging interactive classroom and work with your peers without having to leave your home.
  • Part-time hours: this boot-camp will run between 9.30am – 2.30pm, Monday to Friday.
  • Financial help for parents and support from Generation to cover childcare responsibilities.
  • Advice on how to manage childcare responsibilities on course and when entering employment.

If you live in London and have an enthusiasm for tech, we want to hear from you! Get in touch at or find out more and apply now!
