Be skilled

Have the opportunity to enjoy the learning they need - leading to the achievements and employment they want.

Warwickshire is a county full of diverse education and training opportunities. From the kaleidoscope of possibilities offered in our schools and colleges, to the long list of training and apprentice schemes run by employers. Warwickshire’s economy includes booming industries ranging from the automotive industry to gaming and world class theatre and the arts.

As a uniquely diverse county we must do all we can to offer young people the chance to gain the skills they need to live the fulfilling life they want.

If a young person is looking for details about learning, training, and employment opportunities then Warwickshire Skills Hub is a great place to look.
