New college facilities set to expand apprenticeship offer

May 2, 2024 | News

New training facilities at City of Wolverhampton College's Wellington Road campus, in Bilston, will open in September.

They are set to boost opportunities for employers in the automotive, construction and engineering sectors looking to take on apprentices.

The college’s purpose-built £8.1million Advanced Technology and Automotive Centre, along with its recently extended construction centre, will offer industry-standard training facilities for those combining earning and learning on an apprenticeship programme, as well as students on full-time and part-time courses.

The college’s new facilities will enable it to expand the range of apprenticeship programmes it offers in all three sectors, and support local, regional and national employers by developing bespoke training packages.

The Advanced Technology and Automotive Centre is under construction.

The college is also keen to hear from companies interested in supporting the future workforce by running masterclasses for apprentices.

Employers interested in taking on an apprentice or working in partnership with the college should contact the employer engagement and business development team on 01902 317541 or email
