Leeds College of Building (‘The College’) is celebrating after being named second-best UK Training Provider for 2020-21 in the ‘RateMyApprenticeship Top 50’ league table.
The chart is based on 5,500 honest, authentic student-written reviews across all apprenticeship and school leaver schemes on the national website, www.RateMyApprenticeship.co.uk.
The top training providers in the UK for 2020-2021 were announced at a special awards event, along with the winners of several other awards. Celebrating the outstanding achievements of apprentices, schools and colleges, universities, employers and training providers in apprenticeships, the awards saw over 400 people come together virtually to recognise the industry’s finest.
Overall, Leeds College of Building took second position in the table nationally, behind overall winner Paragon Skills. The College was the only Further Education institution in Yorkshire to make the top 50 training providers and the top-ranking college nationally.
BAM Nuttall, one of Europe’s largest construction companies and partner of Leeds College of Building, was named second in the 100 Top Employers.
Rob Smith, apprenticeship contracts manager at Leeds College of Building, said: “We’re thrilled to be recognised as the top Further Education College nationally for delivering exceptional apprenticeship training. It is even more significant as it is voted for by students themselves. Well done to all of our staff for their dedication to the experience of our students and for working so diligently with employers.”
