New one stop shop for employers

Further Education Training Providers across West Midlands and Warwickshire unveil new one stop shop for employers

  • Skills West Midlands + Warwickshire launched
  • Post 16 training providers say: “We’ve made your business our business”
  • com creates hub to present region’s best training and talent in one place

Colleges and training providers across the West Midlands and Warwickshire have come together to launch a new brand, website and advertising campaign which creates a one stop shop for employers and their workforce.

Skills West Midlands and Warwickshire is part of the Local Skills and Improvement Plan (LSIP) with funding through the Department for Education’s Local Skills and Improvement Fund (LSIF).

Alongside the launch of Skills WM+W, a report reveals detailed research and analysis into the opportunities and challenges around skills in four priority growth sectors: construction, engineering and manufacturing, digital and ICT and logistics and distribution.

Post 16 education and training providers are coming together at a crucial time to upskill and reskill the region’s workforce. They promise to put employers at the heart of the skills planning process, so businesses have the people and skills they need to innovate, grow and thrive.

Skills WM+W has the potential to transform the way colleges engage with employers, delivering a more agile and responsive service that better aligns with employer needs. With this new way of working training providers hope to play an even bigger part in the region’s growth story.

An advertising campaign is running until the 18th June and a website portal is launching the same month.
