Right people, right attitude

The City of Wolverhampton sits right at the heart of one of the UK’s largest pools of skilled labour – 323,000 people live in the city’s travel to work area.

Most importantly, the city has a clear commitment to keeping ahead of the pack through continuous investment in training and skills.

Businesses set the agenda and work together with providers, both to strengthen our current workforce and to build for the future. The Wolverhampton Education Business Partnership brings business and education together to develop the skills of young learners in readiness for working life. Find out how your business can benefit.
