The group includes seven Further Education colleges across Warwickshire and Worcestershire, delivering a range of courses right up to degree level as well as a whole host of apprenticeships.
Peter Allen, Director of Marketing and Communications at WCG, said engagement with business was vital for the group.
He said: “We are one of the largest college deliverers of apprenticeships across the region and we pride ourselves on the fact that we equip our students with the necessary skills to make them ready for the world of work.
“In order to do that, we have to engage with businesses at all levels and be part of the conversation when they are talking about people being work-ready with the right soft and hard skills.
“If businesses want us to do things differently, we will listen and incorporate what they need in the training we offer.
“There is no bigger business conversation in the region than the Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce’s Economic Conference and that is why we have decided to sponsor the event this year.
“It attracts hundreds of businesses as well as politicians and other key stakeholders in the region. We believe this is a great opportunity to get our message across and also to listen to what businesses want.”
Louise Bennett, the chief executive of the Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce, said: “We are delighted to have WCG on board as our sponsors for our Economic Conference in November.
“Each year we bring together business, civic leaders, politicians and other key stakeholders for what is the largest conference of its type in Coventry and Warwickshire.
“We are looking forward to this year’s event in Stratford and no doubt skills and employability will be one of the topics on the agenda.”
