Solihull College Partnership
RMF Group is working in partnership with Solihull College & University centre, to train unemployed adults in a variety of construction roles, to provide the workforce for large infrastructure projects in the region and beyond.
The training is funded by the West Midlands Combined Authority’s (WMCA) Construction Gateway initiative and has already transformed the lives of many of the region’s residents. Learners finish with a guaranteed job interview, setting themselves up for success in the industry.
The plant equipment used at the 22-acre site, where learners are trained on groundworks, rail and both small and large plant qualifications, has been part funded by a grant from the Greater Birmingham & Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership (GBSLEP), recognising the need for learners to finish their training and be industry-ready.
Since the partnership commenced RMF have trained over 900 residents, including those with additional multiple barriers. Our candidates have a retention rate of over 85%, over 90% of whom gained a qualification.
