Recognising Business 2021


As a college, many of our courses rely on local employers to provide insight, work experience and placement opportunities for our students, without whom we could not continue to provide such quality education.

Every year we recognise those businesses that have truly shone and gone above and beyond to help our students and this year is no different. The below businesses have been nominated by our curriculum areas as outstanding businesses.

‘Employers are the backbone of our courses and Leicester College appreciates every business that finds the capacity to train,  educate and support our students. It has been an exceptionally difficult year but you have still worked with us and helped us make the most of the last 12 months. Whether you offer apprenticeships or industrial placements, materials or in-house expertise, you have helped our students develop employability skills and in turn, improved their confidence in the working environment. Students who have had the advantage of this support will go on to successful employment opportunities which would have not been possible without your input. Thank you for your support for Leicester College.’ – Principal Verity Hancock.
