Leeds City College is one of the largest further education institutions in the country with more than 20,000 students and is one of the biggest providers of apprenticeships regionally.
The college is part of Luminate Education Group, which consists of Leeds City College, University Centre Leeds, Leeds Sixth Form College, Keighley College, Harrogate College, Leeds Conservatoire and the White Rose Academies Trust.
The college operates out of three main campuses: Printworks, Park Lane and Quarry Hill with smaller provisions in communities across the city. The new Quarry Hill Campus, based in the Cultural Quarter in Leeds, opened in September 2019.
Leeds City College’s vision is to be a leader in vocational and academic education, creating learning environments where every student can achieve their full potential.
“Leeds Manufacturing Festival gives students and staff a unique opportunity to engage with Leeds manufacturers and learn more about working environments, careers and progression options. On a strategic level, the college’s engagement with the festival will open dialogue about innovation and changes in vocational education and continue to build a collaborative approach to addressing regional skills shortages and the future talent pipeline.”
