The WMG Academy for Young Engineers The WMG Academy for Young Engineers Multi Academy Trust was formed in March 2015. Following the successful opening of the Coventry Academy in September 2014, the WMG Academy Trust opened its second Academy in September 2016 in North Solihull. Formed between a partnership of the University of Warwick and with the support of national, regional and local businesses such as Jaguar Land Rover, National Grid, and Rolls-Royce, the Trust is committed to providing a better way of learning for the Engineers of the future. The Trust is made up of members from industry including the EEF and the Local Authorities Chamber of Commerce and the University of Warwick who have led the development of the WMG Academies and oversee their running from a strategic perspective. They are supported by a board of trustees and governors, all with relevant business and education experience, who shape the experience of our learners. Each WMG Academy focuses on engineering, information, digital and communication technologies and caters for up to 640 learners of 14-19 years of age from Coventry, Warwickshire and Solihull. The WMG Academy initiates and supports the development of well-educated and industry trained learners who not only have the qualifications but also the functional skills, knowledge and personal qualities to make an impact in the worlds of work, further and higher education. As well as a core curriculum at Key Stage 4, which includes GCSEs in the core subjects maths, science, English and Engineering Manufacture, students can select from options, which include a humanities subject and free option subjects. In addition, all Key Stage 4 students can follow additional Level 2 Cambridge Nationals courses in Engineering worth a further 2 GCSEs equivalent. Students at Key Stage 5 can follow a flexible pathway bespoke to their needs. Students can choose to take just STEM A-Levels or combine 3 traditional A-Levels with the Level 3 OCR Technical in Engineering worth the equivalent of 1 A-Level. Alternatively, many students at post 16 can study a Level 3 BTEC Engineering qualification at Certificate or Diploma level. Further BTEC qualifications are available in ICT and Science and students can mix qualifications to suit their needs and interests. WMG Academy for Young Engineers Coventry Opened in September 2014 by Ratan Tata, the Coventry Academy has over 500 students on roll. Located close to the Westwood area in Canley and the University of Warwick, the Coventry Academy was designed with a large Engineering Hall filled with over £1M worth of specialist equipment. Three additional dedicated CAD/CAM areas allow industry standard software to be used by students in their Engineering projects. Students at the Coventry Academy come from a wide catchment area which includes Solihull in the north through to Kenilworth, Warwick and Rugby in the south. The Academy follows an 8.30am – 4.30pm (Tuesday – Thursday) with enrichment opportunities offered to students that include football, F1 in schools, Green Power and Engineering clubs. Students also have access to resources at the University of Warwick. On Mondays and Fridays students leave at 3.20pm.
