The College

Leeds College of Building (LCB) is unique. We’re the only further education college in the UK dedicated to construction and the built environment, making us nationally recognised for delivering courses and apprenticeships in this field.

We offer apprenticeships and courses for 14-16 year olds, school leavers and adults, from entry level up to and including level 6 (degree).

Over the years we have built incredibly robust connections with leading regional, national and international construction organisations. Being able to tap into this network of expertise benefits all our students throughout their studies.

We teach our students the skills and knowledge that employers want. Our teaching and assessment teams, together with the College’s industry links means our curriculum mirrors the current and future needs of the industries within the construction and built environment sector.

We are committed to providing education services that promote equality, diversity and inclusion and safeguarding is central to the College’s mission and values.

The College is home to 6,500 students, of all ages and abilities, studying courses from entry level up to and including level 7.

99% of students are achieving what they came to do at LCB
