What our employer customers say…


“When we decided to take on apprentices I had no idea what to do or where to start but the college were brilliant and lead me every step of the way. They gave us fantastic candidates and I’m so grateful that the college is right on our doorstep.”

Diane Davies, Deputy Editor, Express & Star


“The scheme has been wonderful because it’s bringing new life into the existing team and it’s useful to have new ideas coming through.

“The quality of the apprentices that have come though has been great. It’s been ideal for young people who want to work with their hands and become involved in a real trade in an organisation that will require it for generations to come.”

Kelly Brown, Organisational Design Specialist, Canal & River Trust


“City of Wolverhampton College has been a valuable partner in our desire to recruit and train apprentices and has been intrinsic in the screening and selection process for them.

“Our partnership with the college is an important and fruitful one which I would encourage other employers to explore in their own areas, especially with the Apprenticeship Levy coming into force.”

Abdul Mozzamdar, Apprenticeships Manager, Kier


“Apprentices are part of our industry and we have to keep on training them – if you put the time into young people and take an interest in them, their attitudes are totally different and it creates a much better working environment for your team and your clients.

“Your business is as good as your team so if you invest in your team it really pays off.”
