Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) has awarded Fearless Adventures’ academy scheme almost £500,000 as part of the Skills Bootcamps programme. 

The academy founded by Dominic McGregor sets out to nurture, coach and develop anyone looking to retrain or upskill in all things digital, in order to create industry-leading talent. 

“The Fearless Academy is creating something entirely bespoke for every individual – from specialist training to the job they will secure,” said Dominic. 

The Fearless Academy will deliver free industry-led digital marketing training to help individuals over the age of 19 gain vital digital skills. Alongside this, the academy’s dedicated talent team will support learners upon completion of the 12-week Skills Bootcamp, leveraging their extensive founder network and providing accessible routes into employment.

The curriculum will be delivered by digital marketing experts from the parent brand Fearless Adventures. Its tutors will be sharing their knowledge and expertise across a plethora of digital specialisms, including Search Engine Optimisation (SEO), Pay-Per-Click (PPC), social media, graphic design, and web development. 

The tutors are all experienced professionals that have supported a diverse range of high-growth global brands, including The Hut Group, Co-op, Unilever, Aldi, Logitech and Superdry. 

Managing director Rachel McDonald said: “The Fearless Academy will change the lives of many. We’re excited to upskill and introduce ambitious talent to an industry full of amazing career opportunities.
