Our partners work across Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton, our teams work in partnership with local employers and the Black Country Local Enterprise Partnership to provide relevant training linked to the local labour market.

The region has strong Construction, Transport Technology, Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering sectors, with the Dudley Visitor Economy and the Wolverhampton Food Technology Sectors set to grow in the coming years.

As one of Britain’s leading providers of skills training, we know what works to help you have a successful career. We have great links with local and national employers like Amazon, Tesco, Cordant Security, Hermes, Ceracare, G4S, Genting and Owen Payne – and after undertaking training with one of our partners, you could even land a guaranteed interview an employer.
