The City of Leicester College want you to have a successful future and there are many ways which we will help you to get there!

During your time with us, you will take part in activities which will help you be prepared for your future and the world of work. The Careers programme for every year group can be found on the Careers homepage.

All students have access to the Careers platform Unifrog which will give you a lot of Careers information and support throughout your time with us. You will use Unifrog in some of your PSHE lessons and will be able to use it independently too. If you have any questions about how to use Unifrog please speak to your PSHE teacher or Mrs Davey.
