The City of Leicester College is committed to providing high quality Careers, Education, Information, Advice and Guidance to help inspire our students and prepare them for the future. Our Careers provision and programme is created to meet the eight benchmarks identified by the Gatsby Foundation.

We have a Careers leader and Careers officer in school who plan our provision and ensure we are meeting the Gatsby Benchmarks, however it is also the responsibility of all staff in schools and Colleges to incorporate Careers into the Curriculum. If you would like any help or support in embedding Careers into your subject please contact the Careers leader for our school cdakin@cityleicester.leicester.sch.uk
