about us

The Wolverhampton Learning Platform (WLP) originates to 2010, when a group of Voluntary Sector organisations decided to work together in partnership to address unemployment in Wolverhampton. The WLP was established as a CIC in 2014.

As a community-centric organisation with a strong social purpose, Wolverhampton Learning Platform is focused on increasing real opportunities for disadvantaged and vulnerable citizens across the City.

We mainly work within the areas of severe deprivation that are reliant on critical services and activities provided by grassroots groups and organisations that are essential to supporting the diverse needs of our City’s residents

We invest in and support individuals by providing quality Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG), and high-impact training and development interventions that help to build self-confidence and other essential core skills for routes into education, employment and entrepreneurship.


To maximise the potential of local residents and enhance the social wellbeing and economic prosperity of the community, by making the most of our combined efforts. We work together in a coordinated approach to provide high quality and reliable Information, Advice and Guidance. Additionally, we will offer excellent support, skills and training according to individual needs and aspirations
