Coventry and Warwickshire boasts an extremely skilled population with 55% of the working population educated to NVQ level 3 or above. Coventry is also ranked as one of the top 50 world’s best student friendly cities, according to the 2015 QS world university rankings.

On-going skills provision is ensured by the quality schools, colleges and universities in the area:


Coventry University has established an academic presence with expertise in design, health and digital media as well as automotive engineering and design graduates, and focus on multidisciplinary applied research. Coventry is rated 12th University in the United Kingdom in The Guardian University Guide 2018.

The University of Warwick is globally connected, forward-looking and entrepreneurial. The university creates new ways of thinking and achieving: making it stand out from competitors and the more ‘traditional universities’ and creating an inspiring place to study and undertake research.

Warwick is one of the UK’s great success stories. In less than fifty years since being founded it has become one of the UK’s best universities, consistently at the top of UK league tables and is rapidly climbing the international league tables of world class universities.
