West Midlands (Old) | People Plus

Partnering directly with the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA), our distance learning courses are funded by our Adult Education Budget and European Social Funding (ESF) to provide Skills Support for the Unemployed.

West Midlands

In the West Midlands we deliver courses in the Black Country, Coventry, Warwickshire and Birmingham

Our courses can be delivered in a classroom environment, at pop up locations across the area, at an employers workplace or through distance learning which allows you to complete the training within the comfort of your own home, with regular contact from one of our tutors. Due to the current Covid 19 Lockdown restrictions, all our courses are being delivered remotely.

We offer an end to end service including a full information, advice and guidance session for each person before they are enrolled on to a course.

As well as offering courses to those who are unemployed, we are also able to offer training to people who are in work or who are at risk of redundancy. More information on these courses can be found here
