Vocation Training - Funding Partners

Through our hard work, Vocation Training has been a prime contractor for notable initiatives, including the Black Country Impact- across all four boroughs and districts- and West Midlands Combined Authority contracts. In addition, we have successfully secured contracts from the Education and Skills Funding Agency, and have worked with independent partners including Talent Match, Maximus, Serco, DWP and the West Midlands Probation Services, aiding learners furthest from the labour market, breaking down real and perceived barriers, and enabling us to positively impact the lives of more than 1300 individuals over the past five years.

Our success was not possible without our valued funding partners. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to West Midlands Combined Authority and Black Country Impact. Over the years, their unwavering support empowers us to transform lives, offering opportunities to the unemployed, NEETS, and diverse individuals seeking meaningful employment across the whole of the West Midlands.

By working together, we are able to break barriers, and create a workforce that brings positive change. Their commitment fuels our mission, enabling us to enhance skills, change lives, and build a future where everyone has equal access to opportunities. We thank them for being the catalysts of positive change in our community.
