Leicester College Overview Image

"94% of our learners aged 16-18, who completed a course in 12/13 entered into further learning or into employment." (based on a sample of 2,277 learners).

At Leicester College our students learn and train alongside experienced industry professionals. Our Visual Arts lecturing team are experienced ceramists and artists; our Construction trainers are plumbers and electricians by trade; our Performing Arts and Music and Sound Technology department is home to choreographers, theatrical directors and musicians; and our Hospitality department benefits from the expertise of trained chefs. Our teaching teams focus on our learners progression in their chosen field, whether that is university, employment, work experience or self employment.

Our learners benefit from excellent training facilities, industry partnerships and teaching venues throughout the city and wider communities.

We pride ourselves on the strength of our industry and community partnerships, with all of our learners benefitting from unique learning experiences such as Computing Games masterclasses, Construction learners taking part in community initiatives and our Peter Jones Academy learners pitching to leading Leicestershire business mentors. 

Our learners are also award winning and accomplished, and we cheer them on every step of the way. Leicester College has nurtured some incredible talent and boasts alumni such as Gok Wan, Molly Smitten-Downes and James Byron (The Voice 2014). We have been front row when our learners have achieved at World Skills competitions, Association of Hair and Therapy Awards, and Harman Photographer of the Year.
