Leeds City College is one of the largest FE colleges in the country. It has 1,267 members of staff, around 30,000 students and is one of the biggest providers of apprenticeships nationally.
With a vibrant, multicultural learning environment, the college delivers excellent innovative education, which is supportive, inspiring and enterprising. The on-site commercial restaurant and salon allow students to practice their skills in a real-life working environment that boosts their confidence and soft skills whilst supplementing the theory learnt in class.
Over the past 4 years the Enterprise & Employability department has tripled in size to meet the expanding and changing demands of both students and employers. As well as running a wide range of cross college activities we also deliver our own provision where students can develop their skills, work on live projects and gain practical experiences that will enhance their personal development and future prospects. The department also runs the hugely successful Enterprise Festival, where students get to run and host their own activities, challenges and demonstrations. This event takes place on an annual basis at Trinity Shopping Centre, which is at the heart of Leeds main shopping area.
