Courses & Apprenticeships

At Leeds City College, we feel it’s really important that you understand the four things that make us tick. These key points are what help us to design your individualised study programme, which will challenge, stretch and excite you!


Personalisation

At Leeds City College, we hope to put you and your needs first. From the moment you contact us to ask for careers guidance or course advice, our aim is to get to know you more: what are your experiences, what qualifications do you have, how do you prefer to study?

After this, we will offer you support and help to guide you on to a productive and individualised learning programme which completely suits your needs. We offer all sorts of different academic and vocational qualifications alongside maths, English and workplace experience to deliver a personalised package.

Progression

Your personal aims and career aspirations are extremely important when choosing a course. Our experienced and impartial Student and Learning Services team can advise you on the route best suited to your aim and aspiration.

Whether you are starting out in education, want to progress, attain a degree, get a job or apprenticeship in a specific sector, or gain hands-on experience in industry, we can help you to develop and grow. Our offer includes ‘Step Up’ programmes, which are bite-sized vocational qualifications designed to enhance your maths and English skills and give you valuable work experience.

English and Maths

English and maths qualifications are really important, so we want all of our students to work towards achieving English and mathematics GCSE grades A* to C (for those who do not already hold these). Achieving a good level of English and maths will help you complete your course, progress onto a higher level qualification, or fulfil your career aspiration.

We can help you to develop your skills by assessing the level you are at, enrolling you for the best course (either GCSEs or a Functional Skills course), and providing you with excellent teachers to help you reach your potential.

Work-readiness

With our support, we want you to realise your future career plans. This means gaining the qualification(s) you need and also being ‘work-ready.’ We want your skills to match what employers want from their workforce.

We will help you to gain useful work experience (related to your subject area) or get involved in enrichment activities to develop personal skills essential for the world of work.
