Who are Leicester College’s further education courses for?

Further education courses are suitable for both school leavers and people who want to return to learning. They are taught across three campuses in industry standard facilities to allow our learners to gain experience with equipment and environment that are found in the workplace.

If you are aged 16 to 18 when you start your course with us and you don’t have English and/or maths GCSE at grade 4 (C) or equivalent, these subjects will be an essential part of your study programme.

Further education courses can also be for people who are looking to start a new career: you can study with no matter your age
