From education to employment

Leading training provider expands to new premises in the heart of Leicester

CT Skills is officially moving to their new premises situated in the heart of Leicester city centre on Thursday 18th July 2019

Due to continued success, local training provider CT Skills is officially moving to their new premises situated in the heart of Leicester city centre on Thursday 18th July 2019.

Previously located within Eastgate House on Humberstone Road, CT Skills are excited to be moving to a shared building with local charity, Voluntary Action on Newarke Street, a move which has been seen as beneficial to both.

Last year alone over 400 people in the Midlands enrolled with CT Skills on to industry specialised training programmes in order to enhance their employment prospects. This training not only provides local people with greater employment opportunities but has also supported hundreds of Midlands organisations in recruiting pre-training, industry ready candidates.

CT Skills will continue to deliver a variety of fully-funded Level 1 & 2 courses in highly sought after sectors such as customer service, construction, health & social care and warehousing. Since opening their centre in Leicester in 2018, CT Skills have directly secured interview opportunities for their many of learners with leading employers such as Marriott hotels, Grosvenor Casino and Travelodge.

As a result of the expansion, CT Skills will be able to facilitate the recruitment of even more Leicestershire based SME’s and large businesses with their government funded recruitment programme and apprenticeship delivery.

CT Skills is an ambitious business which employs over 110 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 obtain the Investors in People (IiP) Silver Award.

Chris Dempsey, CT Skills Leicestershire Area Manager commented;

“The new location will be situated within the Voluntary Action Leicestershire building, a local charity who share the same vision as CT Skills and strive to change lives for the better. Having space to deliver more courses will give local people a greater opportunity to access training, qualifications and job interviews with some of the most iconic names in Leicestershire”

CT Skills will be opening from 9am on Tuesday 16th July at Voluntary Action, 9 Newarke Street, Leicester, LE1 5SN.
