We work with closely with local Security Companies, Birmingham and Solihull Job Centre Plus, the West Midlands Combined Authority and the Careers Service to build training programmes that cater to current workforce needs.

Our goal is to provide learners the skills needed to get back into work. Our partner employers know we deliver high quality training so their new starters are Work Ready.
