Student Recruitment For Universities, Colleges & Bootcamp Providers

We can help you cost-effectively recruit students and learners for your undergraduate & postgraduate courses, specialist business training and skills bootcamps. A  cost-per-student payment option is available when recruiting 50 learners or more.

Our Student Recruitment Services

Since December 2021, we have recruited and trained over 300 learners on our Digital Marketing Bootcamps and we currently have further contracts to deliver over 130 additional places in the next 6 months. This experience has allowed us to test and fine-tune the digital channels that we use to attract learners and all the other processes required to cost-effectively recruit large numbers of learners, or their employers. 


As a result, we are now able to offer these recruitment services to other training providers that want to cost-effectively recruit learners for a whole range of courses and bootcamps. Based on this success, we have already partnered with De Montfort University, North Warwickshire and South Leicestershire College and the UX Design Institute to provide a mix of consultancy and learner recruitment for their courses and Skills Bootcamps.


We are confident that we can help you with your recruitment needs and we even offer a cost-per-student payment option for recruiting more than 100 learners in a single cohort.

Effective learner recruitment for training courses & skills bootcamps – What to expect:

  • Experienced marketing and recruitment team
  • Choice of one-off projects, seasonal campaigns or rolling contracts (ideal for larger student numbers)
  • We can enrol 30 to 100 learners within 4 weeks, or have an monthly contract to deliver your ongoing student enrollments
  • Options to pay for our management fee and ad spend or on a Cost-per-Student basis
  • For most courses, the total cost will be £150 -£300 per learner, including set-up, ad costs, and management charges, with discounts for larger cohorts
  • Targeted recruitment strategies for minority and disadvantaged groups
  • Pick & Mix Service, including initial free consultancy to understand your needs

Are you new to running skills bootcamps and need help with recruiting learners?

We specialise in recruiting learners and trainees for Skills bootcamps, which can be a mix of employer-supported employees, self-referred employees, self-employed and unemployed learners. We can also recruit from minority or disadvantaged groups, such as the unemployed, BAME (Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic) communities, younger and older learners.

We understand the importance of effective bootcamp recruitment, which is why we provide all the necessary consultancy, paperwork, ad creative, and forms to make the recruitment process as easy and efficient as possible.  Typically, we recruit a cohort of 30 to 100 learners, within one county and over 3-4 weeks. We recommend recruiting 30% more learners than you want to start; in ordert to allow for screening, initial dropouts and to reach your the first payment criteria.  


If required, we can scale rapidly for national schemes and we offer discounts for training providers and universities that are recruiting larger numbers of students.
