Reignite Your Future

Fight Back From Covid-19

Helping you to refresh and redevelop your skills!

In response to the economic impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic, Colleges in the West Midlands have come together to work collaboratively for you!

For the first time, there is a Regional Skills Recovery Programme that will provide YOU with access to FREE training across the West Midlands. Which will enable you to refresh or redevelop your career and reignite your future.

Working closely with our partners, West Midlands Combined Authority, the National Careers Service, DWP and Jobcentre Plus, we have made these free courses and learning pathways available to you, no matter your age or circumstances!

Are You At Risk of Redundancy?
Are You a Business Owner?

Whatever happens, as Covid-19 continues to impact on our daily lives, our colleges are committed to providing you with a safe learning environment. However, should access to college sites be restricted, we have developed in-depth online resources and new strategies which guarantee to provide all learners with a high-quality programme of study.

Covid-19 has made life difficult, we are here to help with a wide range of FREE programmes to get you back on track.


Our Offer

Following the challenges presented by Covid-19, we have developed a new Regional Skills Recovery Programme. These programmes are specifically designed to help you get back into work or move into a new career. Flexible approaches to study are available NOW.
