West Yorkshire Consortium of Colleges
The West Yorkshire Consortium of Colleges operates on behalf of seven FE Colleges in West Yorkshire. We are 'The Colleges' Company'.

We bring businesses, organisations and training providers together to deliver workforce training and skills support, funded by the European Social Fund (ESF). These programmes contribute to the economic growth of the Leeds City Region, tackle social mobility and connect the education and business sectors. The projects we manage offer funding opportunities for a range of training providers to deliver training in the region. You can read about our latest bids and opportunities, then register and apply on In-Tend.

The Skills Service is the gateway for businesses to this unique package of training and support in the Leeds City Region.
