Leading Training Provider, CT Skills will officially open the doors of their new Leicestershire centre on Tuesday 24th July.

This year alone 1,240 people in the East Midlands have enrolled on to life changing courses with CT Skills, which has resulted in an expansion demand for their employment & training opportunities right in the heart of Leicester.

CT Skills will be utilising one of the largest Adult Education Budget of any ITP in Leicester, to deliver a variety of courses in highly sought after sectors such as customer service, construction, health & social care and warehousing with many including guaranteed job interviews with local employers.

As a result of the expansion, CT Skills will be working with SME’s and large businesses across the region to support with their workforce development and Apprenticeship programmes. CT Skills will be launching their Adult Education provision this month in partnership with leading employers including Marriott Hotels, Hilton Hotels and Frontline Construction.

CT Skills is an ambitious business which employs over 100 staff and has some of the largest funding contracts in the country. They are graded Good by Ofsted and hold the British Quality Standard ISO 9001 and were recently awarded the Investors in People (IiP) Silver Award.

Chris Dempsey, CT Skills Leicestershire Area Manager commented; “Leicester is one of the most vibrant and cultural cities in the country providing many great opportunities for residents to achieve their career goals.

Opening our new centre in Leicester has given us the chance to not only support unemployed people in to sustainable work but also form relationships with local employers to recruit and develop their staff through Apprenticeship training.  We are really excited for this next step in the history of CT Skills!”
