WELCOME TO LEEDS CITY COLLEGE 2020 was an important year, marked by the opening of the Chroma-Q Theatre at Quarry Hill for our Creative Arts students. This exciting new space is an apt reflection of our mission statement to create learning environments where every student can achieve their potential. On the topic of our mission and values, in 2020 we also decided to relaunch our ‘I’m in’ initiative, so as a Leeds City College student you can expect to be individually supported, included, inspired, in cutting-edge learning environments, instrumental in change by being listened to and influenced by inventive learning experiences. At Leeds City College we have industry-standard facilities for you to train in, exciting industry links for you to leverage and expert tutors for you to learn from. We are rated ‘Good with Outstanding features’ by Ofsted, so we’re confident that no matter where you are in your educational journey, we can pave the path to your future. We look forward to welcoming you on campus.

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS Don’t worry if you don’t meet the exact entry requirements. We will always consider your personal circumstances and help you find the course that’s best for you. The entry requirements may vary for different courses as detailed in this guide.

Some courses may need you to have English and maths GCSEs at grade 5 due to the content. This will be explained when you speak to one of your department tutors.

There’s no need to stress if you haven’t got your English and maths GCSEs at grade 4. They will be built into your course alongside your subject.

VOCATIONAL QUALIFICATIONS VS A LEVELS Vocational qualifications are an alternative to A levels and a viable route to university. Despite common misconceptions, these qualifications are just as valuable as A level qualifications and are highly regarded by many universities and employers alike. Vocational qualifications are perfect for students who know exactly what they want to do, are passionate about their favourite subject and can’t wait to get stuck in.

Benefits of vocational qualifications: • Students can connect with industry experts. • Students gain industry insight from guest lectures, placements, live projects and more. • Students gain the practical skills and experience demanded by employers. • Students experience focused teaching around their chosen subject. • Students train in specialised facilities reflecting real-world environments. • Students are taught by tutors with real industry experience. • Our vocational qualifications have built-in academic skills modules to support progression to further study, higher education, apprenticeships or employment. • Many vocational qualifications emphasise coursework over exams. • Many vocational qualifications are built around industry needs. • Some vocational qualifications provide more UCAS points than A levels. Still aiming to study A levels? Check out our A level provision at Leeds Sixth Form College, visit leedssixthform.ac.uk.

SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGLISH AND MATHS (STEM) STEM is frequently talked about; discover what it is and why it’s so important for your future career opportunities. We live in a rapidly changing world, technological and scientific advances are being made all the time, improving our daily lives, quality of life and how we work. This is an exciting world to work in with great career progression. Locally, nationally and internationally, there are vacancies and skills shortages in these areas so there are great job opportunities for all. Having STEM skills makes you very employable. Demand for people working in STEM is high and set to increase even more over the coming years. They also attract good salaries. STEM refers to skills and knowledge from four subject areas: science, technology, engineering and mathematics. At Leeds City College, we offer courses at all levels with progression to higher level study built into our progression routes, right up to university level.

STEM education combines knowledge and practical experience, developing the essential skills employers are looking for. We call these the STEM seven: • Creative thinking • Problem solving • Communication • Collaborative working • Intellectual curiosity • Flexibility • Data-driven decision-making There is such an emphasis on STEM education because our economy and future depends on the skills and knowledge from STEM subjects. People who understand how to anticipate problems and create solutions will always be in demand. Studying a STEM course will allow you to progress on to a range of jobs in: software development, health, data security, engineering, motor vehicle, laboratories, renewable energy and environment, psychology, games development, computer programming, medical science, actuary, conservation, artificial intelligence or petroleum engineering to name a few! Interested in STEM? Check out our School of Applied Science, School of Digital & IT and School of Engineering.
