Building College CEO Announced Chair of West Yorkshire Consortium of Colleges

The West Yorkshire Consortium of Colleges has appointed Nikki Davis, CEO and principal of Leeds College of Building, as its chair.

In 2022, Davis was appointed the first ever female CEO and principal in Leeds College of Building’s 60-year history.

Davis says she’s committed to leading this unique collaboration of colleges to transform lives through learning, and strive for continuous improvement for FE in West Yorkshire.

Under Davis’ leadership, Leeds College of Building is focused on diversity, inclusivity, and access for all to the opportunities offered by the construction sector. The college is also engaged in green and sustainable skills training to help contribute to critical national net-zero targets, it says.

Davis will chair the consortium which consists of the seven principals of the FE Colleges in West Yorkshire. The board meets regularly to agree collaborative opportunities that will increase the skills of the people and businesses of the region. The consortium strives to build capacity, increase accessibility and drive up the quality of learning in West Yorkshire’s colleges and partner organisations.

As chair, Davis will work closely with the principals and WYCC Director, Joanne Patrickson to influence and support the skills agenda in the region, and work with key partners such as the West Yorkshire Combined Authority, chambers of commerce and other partners working to meet the skills needs.

Davis said: “I am delighted to take up the role of West Yorkshire Consortium of Colleges Chair. This is an exciting time for WYCC, and I look forward to supporting its important work with education providers and businesses to boost crucial skill levels across the region.”

WYCC partner colleges include Leeds College of Building, Bradford College, Calderdale College, Kirklees College, Luminate Education Group, Heart of Yorkshire Education Group and Shipley College.
