What is Campaign Bootcamp? It's a year long accelerator course designed to give campaigners the skills, community and confidence they need to win. It's perfect if you've been campaigning for a while and what to learn how to be more successful.
What do you learn at Bootcamp? Everything they need to win a campaign. The syllabus covers strategy, tactics, coding, design, fundraising, media, managing your mental health, email writing, social media and much more.
Sounds good, who teaches these sessions? Leading campaigners who are working at the cutting edge of campaigning, then we train them to deliver sessions that are experiential and participative.
What does it cost? The full year programme costs £3200 per person. That covers everything - the training, the residential, board, lodging, the follow up programme and mentorship.
Are there scholarships available? Yes, there are a limited number of scholarships available for NGOs with a turnover under £400,000. If you're eligible for a scholarship we'll ask you to contribute £1600 if your turnover is £200k-£400k. If your turnover is under £200k we'll ask you to contribute £550.

How does the year work? We've carefully designed Bootcamp to build skills, confidence and community. The programme has four parts:
A 6 day residential starts the programme. It’s designed to give graduates the basic skills they need to succeed.
Mentorship - a mentor who works with them to help them become a better campaign.
Training days - there are follow up days spaced throughout the year, where graduates come together to share successes and failures and receive training that consolidates and extends their learning
Community support - we’ve carefully curated the Bootcamp community to be a supportive space where graduates can ask questions, share successes and failures and cheer each other on.
Is this just another training? No, this is an intense accelerator course designed to give early stage campaigners a big boost. We’ve designed the course to be challenging, practical and inspirational whilst still being a fun and energising experience. We carefully evaluate and learn from every training we deliver to ensure we’re always getting better.
