Warwick New Road
WCG is a large and successful multi-college group based across Warwickshire and Worcestershire, with over 15,000 learners based at its 7 college campuses receiving education and training in areas as diverse as agriculture and the computer games industry. The colleges are Royal Leamington Spa, Warwick Trident, Moreton Morrell, Rugby, Evesham, Pershore and Malvern Hills.
WCG has strong regional, national and international links, alongside a longstanding reputation as a high quality provider who works closely with businesses of all size and scale.
WCG is also one of the largest apprenticeship providers in the Midlands, training around 2,500 apprentices each year from more than 1200 businesses, ranging from micro to macro businesses. We are pleased to have been at the forefront of the apprenticeship reforms as Jaguar Land Rover’s preferred partner in the development of trailblazer (new standard) engineering apprenticeships since 2013 at both advanced and degree level.
WCG's offer for businesses is not restricted to Apprenticeships and professional courses. The group has substantial undergraduate provision, delivering HNC, HND, Foundation degree and Honours degrees across a wide range of subjects, including many that meet the higher skills needs of employers in the region, such as construction, engineering, business, agri-tech, horticulture and agri-tech.
We would recommend any organisation large or small to give young people an opportunity and take on an apprentice. It's been a real value to our business and that's why we have chosen WCG again to support us in recruiting our second apprentice.

Once again we are working with WCG Apprenticeships this year and we are doubling the intake of engineering apprentices. We at Dematic have recognised the importance of WCG support in the growth of our engineering teams via good apprenticeships.
Darren Smith - Technical Trainer at Dematic
WCG provides affordable training, but best of all they bend over backwards to accommodate our needs. We employ people at different locations, on all sorts of shift patterns. They travel anywhere and they even come during the night to deliver the sessions. We wouldn’t go anywhere else for this type of training.
