NEW Regional Skills Recovery Programme

Walsall College is part of Colleges West Midlands and the West Midlands Combined Authority’s initiative to help get people whose careers have been impacted by Covid-19 back into work. Adults aged 19 and over can enrol and participate in free skills training without losing their benefits.  All programmes are linked to in-demand jobs and local industry areas that are set to grow in future.

Continuing to learn new skills and develop your knowledge can improve your self-confidence and your job prospects.  It makes you a role model for friends and relatives and is believed to have a positive influence on your physical and mental health.

Our 2 to 6 weeks programmes are delivered in partnership with a range of employers looking to develop their workforces. Not only does this pre-employment training provide you with new skills for specific sectors, you can also complete a work placement, receive CV support and a guaranteed interview.
