Mitre Group have partnered with West Midlands Combined Authority to provide fully funded training courses and qualifications to residents in the West Midlands. The aim is to support residents, helping individuals to gain skills and experience to enhance CV’s and ultimately boost employability for West Midlands residents. We’re working in the area across 4 courses; Leadership & Management, Health, Lifestyle & Science, Customer Service and Sports Coaching & Physical Activity.


For businesses, we can arrange bespoke start dates to support where there may be significant staff currently on furlough leave. If jobs are currently at risk, these courses might be perfect to complete whilst on furlough to boost CVs should the worst happen! If, sadly, employers have already had to make redundancies, we’d love to encourage employers to send these details to ex-employees who may still be searching for new job opportunities.


The courses are exclusively for West Midlands Residents aged 19 and over, living in the following council areas:

  • Birmingham City Council
  • Coventry City Council
  • Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council
  • Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council
  • Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council
  • Walsall Council
  • City of Wolverhampton Council


We’re starting courses in February and March and hope to add more dates into April and May subject to demand.
