About Us

The six colleges that form the Black Country Colleges (BCC) enable the region’s businesses to develop a more highly skilled workforce through Apprenticeship and Traineeship programmes, creating opportunity and developing excellence.

Through the delivery of a wide range of Apprenticeship programmes we are able to:

  • Transform the lives of individuals
  • Stimulate growth and strengthen the economy
  • Develop a multi-skilled, flexible workforce that is able to contribute to the financial viability and success of the businesses that we work with.


The BCC work with businesses of all sizes to analyse their training needs, identify relevant Apprenticeships or Traineeships, advise on funding and identify the best way of providing the training needed.

The BCC has drafted a 2016 Manifesto describing the collaborative work of the colleges.
