About Us

Established in October 2015; The Training Academy was set up by industry to tackle the skills shortage in UK Manufacturing. Funded through European Social Fund and The Education & Skills Funding Agency, The Training Academy works in partnership with The Three Counties Consortium through Heart of Worcestershire College and SERCO.

Our vision is to bring industry and education together to create the next generation of a skilled workforce.

We align industry specific training to vocational qualifications; giving the trainee the very best skills and experience to start their career in the sector.

For the business, we support with recruitment, selection and training for new and existing members of your workforce, all fully funded.

We work together with Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership (WLEP) to drive the skills provision for the manufacturing sector and provide a whole organisational support in staff development and training. Our strategic objectives are aligned to the WLEP and aims to bridge the skills gap in the Worcestershire area.

Committed to developing the next generation of industry, we have a dedicated skills development centre of excellence run by industry to give individuals the very best start to their career.

No matter what level of experience there is a development programme for you.
