The majority of provision is funded by the West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) and a small amount by the Education & Skills Funding Agency (ESFA). The Education & Skills Funding Agency works with the European Social Fund (ESF), which funds programmes and initiatives for improving employment opportunities. For further information on the ESF visit their website.


We deliver education and training throughout the City, often working in partnership with schools, community and voluntary organisations and other training providers. Adult Education Wolverhampton currently operates from two main centres within the City - Old Hall Street and The Maltings.
