Leeds College of Building focuses on student support for Colleges Week

The fifth annual Colleges Week, a national celebration of further education providers, took place from 17-21 October this year.

As this year’s awareness campaign centres on the theme of ‘Staff, Students, and Skills,’ Leeds College of Building is focusing on student support to help counter the devastating effects of the cost-of-living crisis.

The college trains nearly 2,800 apprentices across several subject areas with the support of over 600 employer partners across the UK. More students than ever before are benefiting from apprenticeships and the ability to “earn while you learn” during this difficult financial period, the college says.

Over 1,200 pupils booked to attend the careers event during the day, with parents/carers and students aged 14-16 visiting from 4-7 pm. Live demos took place throughout, and staff were available to help with any course or support queries.

The college offers personal guidance, welfare and safeguarding advice, financial and transport support, and progression and employer engagement activities to ensure each student reaches their potential. It also offers financial support including half-fare bus passes, bursaries and access to the Learner Support Fund, free meals, help with applying to trust and charity grants, advanced learner loans, tuition fee loans, maintenance loans for living costs, and discounts from local suppliers for stationery, protective clothing, and drawing equipment.

The college’s University Centre offers higher-level qualifications including HNCs, HNDs, and a BSc (Hons) Civil Engineering Site Management Degree Apprenticeship. Students studying these higher-level and professional qualifications can progress to jobs in professions such as transport planning, quantity surveying, and civil engineering without amassing the debt typically associated with higher education.
