Sandwell College are working closely with the West Midlands Combined Authority to help local unemployed people learn skills in demand by employers in a specific area of work such as care, hospitality, security and construction. All courses are in industries that are set to grow in the future and have jobs available.
Adults who are aged 19 or over can take part in our SWAP programme for free and will not lose their benefits.
A sector-based work academy programme can last up to six weeks and has three main components:
- Pre-employment training matched to the employer’s business needs
- Work experience placement to learn new skills on the job and gain valuable qualifications for the future
- At the end of the programme, learners are guaranteed either a job interview with an employer or help with the application process
