Wolverhampton is the second largest part of the West Midlands urban area, and the 12th largest city in the UK. One of the last three towns in the country to receive city status in 2000, it is a progressive city with a diverse and multicultural population.
As a market for Pitman Training, it is one of tremendous potential with 582,000 people just 20 minutes’ drive from the city centre, and three million within just a 20 mile radius. There is also huge footfall within the central shopping are, as Wolverhampton attracts an incredible 30 million visitors a year.
The city is undergoing a substantial regeneration project bringing jobs and new amenities to the city with hundreds of millions of pounds being spent on city centre schools, shopping and a new bus station. This can only help to strengthen its position as a city on the up.
