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.
