Blue Print Direct Mail utilise TDM’s Tech and Digital Skills Bootcamp to upskill five staff members

Blue Print Direct Mail recently completed a bespoke Skills Bootcamp, upskilling five members of their team to utilise a new software being introduced by the organisation.


The bespoke Skills Bootcamp, delivered via TDM, focused on the fundamentals of HTML and CSS, with Managing Director Anthony highlighting that Blue Print chose to utilise Skills Bootcamps in order to introduce members of the team to using code and feeling comfortable doing so, with the support of a TDM technical expert, enabling Blue Print to get the ball rolling with implementation of the new software and system needed within the organisation.


Operations Director Phil who participated in the Skills Bootcamp, has shared the following:


‘The company had purchased new software to implement within the organisation, which was built on HTML and CSS. Five members of our team (including myself) were signed up onto the Skills Bootcamp, with only one staff member of the five having had any experience with coding prior.


We were able to create a bespoke Tech and Digital Skills Bootcamp with TDM, that was tailored to us, to support us to develop the new skills that the organisation required.


To begin, a few of us were nervous about the new software and coding, but the weekly three hour classroom consolidation sessions were useful in keeping us disciplined and our TDM coach set us tasks to prepare us for the sessions.


Everyone has done really well on the Skills Bootcamp, embracing the coaching / learning and the tasks that we were set. Comparing where we are now to where we started is fantastic in terms of what we have learnt.


Myself and the other members of the team who completed the Bootcamp are now able to understand and use the new software inline with the business needs.’


For Blue Print, developing these skills in house has removed the need for external involvement, saving time and money and enabling the professional development of their workforce.


Skills Bootcamps are a national skills and development programme and in Worcestershire, organisations can access skills bootcamps in a range of sectors.


Thanks to a generous £1 million boost, Worcestershire County Council is committed to continuing delivery of the programme to further support individuals and organisations across the county.


The Skills Bootcamps initiative is here to meet the needs of individuals aged 19 and above. For many organisations, skills and training presents a challenge and this initiative aims to support employers to ensure their workforce is ready for the future by providing carefully curated training programmes as well as reducing the cost to train staff.


For employers, the Skills Bootcamps programme can help with upskilling or retraining existing staff. This can not only lead to improved productivity, efficiency and financial gain, but for employees directly, it can support their personal development and strengthen their wellbeing and enjoyment at work.
