Students leaving WMG Academy go on to apprenticeships, university or work. Read some of our success stories here.
Testimonial from CPW (Couch Perry Wilkes) about our successful five students who began their Design Engineer apprenticeships:
Ryan Harper, William Hudson, Corey Johnstone, Alfie Timmins and Dylan Woolgar joined us from WMG Academy for Young Engineers Solihull in September 2022. They have all settled in brilliantly and are already valuable members of their teams, getting stuck into project work alongside their studies. It’s been a pleasure working with WMG Academy; we appreciate the opportunity to engage with a local education provider that produces high calibre learners. It’s great to see that the academy really encourages strong connections to industry, helping to bridge the skills gap in the sector for employers as well as ensuring their learners are well prepared for the working world through regular careers fairs and employer talks that we are always happy to be involved with.
Alexander Rodgers and Joshua Taylor have started their careers within iRob who are the leading manufacturer for all installation, tooling manufacture and Robotics. they have joined iRob as junior installers after studying an extended diploma in engineering at WMG Academy.

Hussain is currently Space Science and Robotics at Aberystwyth University, after studying a combination of A-levels and BTEC engineering at WMG Academy, with plans for a career in humanoid or space robotics. Hussain said: “From a very young age, I knew I wanted to specialise in STEM. WMG Academy helped me build on the knowledge I had already from being home educated. The facilities were top notch! The teachers certainly didn’t lack in giving us motivation nor patience with answering my numerous questions. I’m very excited about what my future holds.”
