What Our Students Say

“So the tutors are great for a number of reasons – they’re casual, you don’t feel like you’re being forced to do anything that’s uncomfortable, they’re not strict, they’ll have a laugh with you if you want to and they know how to get stuff done when they need to if we’re on a bit of a time crunch, but they also know how to have a bit of fun and not put pressure on you – and they’re great, they’re always there to give you information if you need it for at-home tasks and they’re always on Google Hangouts to message you if you need anything and they get back to you really quickly.”

“Before I came to Leeds City College, I was in school, I was in such a bad way at school, skiving lessons all the time, teachers always on my case, getting kicked out numerous times almost. So I applied for here just hoping to get on a course, I got accepted – it was entry Level 3. Dave was my tutor and I couldn’t have asked for anyone better as a tutor, because he just helped me. He helped me with every regard, with Maths and English, workshop work, the theory side of the workshop work – telling me how everything is and showing me what’s what.”

Overview

Strongly focuses on developing personal and wellbeing skills. Students can complete a BTEC award vocational course with us in a variety of subjects if on the full time course: this is equivalent to Entry Level 3.

Students can choose a vocational course or an on-site work placement.

Vocational subjects include: Art, Sport and Public Services, Business and IT, Health and Social Care, Construction and Motor Vehicle, Hospitality and Catering and Science. We can also offer alternative subjects based on demand.

Onsite work experience placements includes Catering, Admin and Reception work.

Start dates from September to January. (We do also accept students post-January on a case by case basis.)

Enrichment activities available which enhance employability and soft skills.

PSHCE and Digital Skills (ICT) lessons are timetabled weekly. Students work towards their maths and English qualification (GCSE/ Functional Skills/ RARPA maths and English). If a student has achieved one of Maths or English, then they can re-sit the one they have not passed with us and we can amend their timetable so they are still in full time.

Most students who come onto this course do progress onto a mainstream college course or secure employment after completion.
