Leeds College of Building has been ranked as one of the best further education providers in the region by employers.
Scoring 8.5 out of 10 in the Skills Funding Agency survey, Leeds College of Building ranked highest in terms of the quality and benefit of the training provided, the professionalism of staff and the flexibility to meet the needs of employers and apprentices.
Mr Ian Billyard, Principal at Leeds College of Building says: “To be given such top marks by the people who count is a real compliment to the teaching and support staff. We pride ourselves on providing up-to-date relevant industry training and communicating clearly and efficiently with employers. We know how vital it is to understand and meet the training needs of employers and we do this every day working with over 1250 employers in the region to train over 600 apprentices and provide over 70 on-site training courses.
“With 7,000 students, and as the UK’s only specialist further education construction college, we are definitely leaders in our field but it’s incredibly reassuring to know that the companies we work with feel so confident in our offering.”
