Corporate Parenting is our collective responsibility to care for, love and champion our children in care and our care leavers and ensure they have every opportunity to reach their full potential as they grow up. We are committed to ensuring we provide the best possible support and care for children who are in care or leaving care and support their strengths, celebrate their achievements and create many lasting happy memories.

Care Leavers Apprenticeships

The City of Wolverhampton Council offer a variety of apprenticeships for Care Leavers to apply for. As a Wolverhampton Care Leaver, you will be guaranteed an interview as long as you meet the essential job requirements for that role.

As part of our commitment to Wolverhampton Care Leavers, you will be able to apply for these apprenticeships at the “internal” stage of the recruitment process rather than when they are published for external “general” applications.
