If you require more information about the Careers education provided in College then please contact Mr C Dakin or Mrs K Davey (contact details can be found at the top of this page).

All enquiries from interested parties should be directed to the College Careers Coordinator.

Education and training providers are encouraged to read the College Provider Access Statement in our Policies section of our website.

Measuring Impact

A successful careers and guidance programme should be reflected in higher numbers of students progressing into positive destinations (e.g. colleges, universities, apprenticeships or employment). Information on the destinations of students who leave The City of Leicester College at the end of KS4 and KS5 is available in the performance tables published by the Department for Education.
