Welcome to the Leeds College of Building Virtual Event - Nikki Davis, Vice Principal - Quality, Teaching & Learning

Each year, Leeds College of Building celebrates International Women's Day. As such, we’ve created this virtual resource for female students considering a career in the construction industry, a sector that has excellent progression opportunities and diverse jobs on offer. We are passionate about inclusion and welcome all students. You can find information about courses and support below and hear directly from some of our female students in the videos and blogs.

Please get in touch with any questions you have regarding the application and enrolment process, the types of courses we offer, career opportunities, how to get an apprenticeship, funding and course fees. You can get in touch using the enquiry form at the bottom of the page.
