Leicester College is a local, award winning, voluntary sector social enterprise with over 25 years’ experience.
We provide vocational and non-vocational training including Skills for Life, employability skills, Apprenticeships and Workplace learning. We also meet the additional support needs of learners. Our continuing studies provision provides a holistic package of support for learners with learning difficulties and/or disabilities.
We are a National Careers Service subcontractor and offer impartial careers advice at our three main campuses and our outreach centres as appropriate. Leicester College has staff who are also qualified to undertake comprehensive Initial Advice and Guidance (IAG) prior to a client starting a training programme.
As well as training provision, the College offers a range of support including:
- Job Club access to search and prepare for employment
- Childcare services
- Specialist learning support
- Higher Education advice guidance and support
We have excellent links with JCP and we provide a range of job search and training support to their clients. This relationship is crucial as we understand the changes regarding Universal Credit.
In a nutshell, Leicester College can handle a referral, provide IAG, engage an individual throughout training provision, offer enrichment, provide job search support, coordinate work experience and then work with customers to secure sustainable employment or undertake further training.
Leicester College is a member of Reaching People.
