Meeting business needs

According to the CITB, over 50% of employers are facing skills shortages. This means they are unable to recruit for some of the most necessary roles, including bricklayers, plant operatives or groundworkers.

In partnership with the West Midland Combined Authority (WMCA) and local employers, Walsall College is introducing a free pre-employment programme that helps to provide local construction companies with a qualified and job ready workforce.
