A partnership between four of the Midlands’ major education providers will make it easier for businesses to access the support they need to develop a skilled workforce and build back better from the pandemic. 

WCG(原沃里克郡学院集团), 银河在线真人平台, 银河在线真人平台和索利哈尔学院 & University Centre/Stratford-upon-Avon College are the partner organisations behind Collaborate to Train Coventry and Warwickshire.

The ‘Collaborate to Train’ project is supported by the European Social Fund and aims to improve the ways in which education providers, local authorities and other stakeholders work together with businesses to provide high-quality and effective education and training services in a more collaborative way.

Coventry City Council is also a partner in the scheme and alongside the four education providers is engaging with businesses to ensure that delivery is responsive to regional economic leads.

Collaborate to Train is now entering its second phase and the first phase engaged with more than 400 local businesses.

The consortium works together to help SMEs access the right training needed to support the future of their businesses, 这包括获得学徒机会, 工作经验配售, 支持实习,为有效的学校参与提供建议.

如果一个企业接近合伙企业的成员之一, 但另一个合作组织将处于更好的支持地位, the business will then be put directly in touch with the other college or university – helping the business to easily access the best tailored educational provisional in the region.

The partnership looks to encourage more businesses to take advantage of skills training provision and engage with businesses that wouldn’t usually consider utilising local education to develop their workforce.

詹姆斯Lewit, WCG的项目主管, said: “The message from Government is that education and business need to work closer together in order to overcome the current skills crisis.

“The Collaborate to Train project goal is to improve those links between business and education and break down barriers which may lead to some SMEs being discouraged to take advantage of the provision available.

“The partnership saw great success in the first phase and now has the foundations to press on and play a key role in the development of skilled individuals across Coventry and Warwickshire.”

艾玛·英格拉姆, 银河信誉平台首席雇主参与和销售, added: “银河在线真人平台 is very pleased to be working in partnership with partners WCG, 斯特拉特福德大学 & Coventry University on the second phase of the successful ESF Collaborate to Train project.

“The project is pivotal to ensuring SMEs in Coventry and Warwickshire are fully engaged with their local education providers, and to access information and guidance on the most appropriate training to suit their needs including apprenticeships, 实习和获得高质量的工作经验.”

亚历克斯·迪克森, 考文垂市议会交付-就业和技能主管, added: “Coventry City Council are pleased to be a partner of the second phase of the ESF funded project Collaborate to Train, which is being delivered through a consortium of major stakeholders in education, 考文垂和沃里克郡的培训和商业活动.

“As a partner of the first phase of Collaborate to Train the increased benefits of the project were evident, with a range of local SME’s increasing their involvement with education and employment services. 提供工作经验安排, apprenticeships and a range of school engagement activities helping pupils make informed choices about their chosen career path.

“For businesses the project allowed them to inspire the next generation of employees, 让他们对工作世界有一个真正的了解.”
