The West Yorkshire Consortium of Colleges (WYCC) has appointed Nikki Davis, CEO and principal of the Leeds College of Building, as its new chair.

Nikki, the college’s first female CEO and principal, will chair the consortium which consists of the seven principals of the further education colleges in West Yorkshire.

She will work closely with the principals and WYCC director Joanne Patrickson to influence and support the skills agenda in the region, and work with key partners such as the West Yorkshire Combined Authority, chambers of commerce and other partners working to meet the skills needs.

Nikki said: “I am delighted to take up the role of WYCC chair. This is an exciting time for WYCC, and I look forward to supporting its important work with education providers and businesses to boost crucial skill levels across the region.

“Collaborating on WYCC projects is essential to tackle regional skills gaps and contribute to economic growth. As chair, I hope to support even more initiatives promoting training in digital technologies and green skills alongside furthering social mobility and diversity across our regional workforce.” 

Joanne said: “We are really pleased that Nikki is chairing the consortium. Nikki brings so much to the role and has a great insight into further education and the regional skills agenda, we will value and welcome her support.”
