December 16, 2013

Apply to Campaign Bootcamp 2014 

What is Campaign Bootcamp?
It’s a year long course that starts on 9 March 2014 with an intensive five-day residential training delivered by the best campaigners around. Once the residential is done you get a year of support including 4 follow up training days, community support and mentoring from campaign experts.

When does Campaign Bootcamp start? 
The training residential is on the 9 -14 March

Where will the residential be?
Less than an hour outside London.

How do I apply? 
Fill in the form below! Applications close in 5 days at 09:00 on Saturday December 21st.

Who delivers the training? 
The best campaigners in the country. Last year we had trainers from Liberty, Shelter, 38 Degrees, Greenpeace, Oxfam,, No More Page 3, Blue State Digital, Engaging Networks, SumOfUs, Nonsense and Save The Children. This year will be even better

What does the training cover? 
Everything to create a winnable campaign. Developing campaign strategies, writing persuasive copy, designing and coding websites, applying tactics, building a community, media training and analysing the impact of your campaign – it’s all there and then some.

The sessions teach you the skills you need to execute a campaign, and we get you to apply what you’ve learnt to a campaign scenario throughout the week. On the last day you’ll be thrown into a real time campaign crisis scenario to put everything you’ve learnt to the test.

Campaign Bootcamp is hard work but lots of fun – just like a real campaign. You not only walk out with the confidence to run a campaign but a network of campaigners who can support you. The full syllabus is online here.

How much does it cost?
We’re a non profit that wants to build a stronger, fairer and more diverse campaigning sector. That means we operate a flexible pricing model that allows the most diverse range of people possible to attend.

    Hi Matt,

    I facilitate a youth panel in east Manchester aged 13 19, this opportunity looks great but incredibly expensive are there any free places? Young people where I work would not be able to afford to fund something like this. What age group is it aimed at?
