Birmingham Metropolitan College (BMC) is one of the largest further and higher education colleges in England, delivering from campuses in Greater Birmingham, the Black Country and Worcestershire. It is a highly successful college supporting some 40,000 learners. With an outstanding track record of working with Jobcentre Plus, Work Programme Primes, Work Programme Clients, employers and other stakeholders to move forward the employability agenda, the college has a proud reputation for delivering skills packages that meet the needs of employers and their future employees. Specifically the college works with some of the UK’s largest employers, including the NHS, Jaguar Land Rover, Caterpillar, Cadbury and BMW, to deliver their skills needs. In some cases this relationship has resulted in Strategic Partnership Employer Training Academies managed by the college on behalf of their client. We have established new teaching and learning facilities which includes the installation of state-of-the-art computer integrated manufacturing equipment which will directly impact on the curriculum areas of automotive engineering, engineering, manufacturing, and electronics. This will offer a consistent and high quality offer to employers and learners in the engineering and manufacturing sectors.
