Currently only around 3% of all Vehicle Technicians in the UK are trained in electric vehicles technologies. The College is working in partnership with The West Midlands Combined Authority and Duplex Business Services (DBS) to deliver a range of programmes in electric vehicle and green technologies to address this skills gap, providing our local community with the knowledge, skills and qualifications needed to access these new job opportunities.
Who is this for?
If you are looking for a career in the automotive sector then these courses, ranging from Level 1 to Level 4 are the launchpad for your career. The courses are aimed at anyone over 19 years-old looking to develop a new career. You need to be able to commit to the training which is 5 days per week and the number of weeks depend on the level you are studying.
Where can this lead you to?
This is an employment led initiative to support people into jobs and careers in the developing automotive sector. The courses will give you the skills you’ll need to begin a career in electric vehicle technologies.
What to do next?
Training programmes start in Spring 2021. Once you have indicated an interest directly through us, to your Job Centre work coach or via Wolves at Work you will be invited to the next information session. During this session you will be given details of planned training, funding guidance and the potential work outcomes.
