  • Leeds City College

    Leeds City College

    Leeds City College is one of the largest and fastest growing further education institutions in the country, providing a vibrant and diverse learning environment, delivering first class, innovative education, and a wide range of courses that prepare students for the next phase of their lives.

    The School of Sport Science & Exercise offers three pathways that can lead to a dream career in sport; sport science, sports therapy, coaching or training.

    With several sports academies, including football, basketball and rugby, the school empowers students with the choice to train, play and gain the necessary theoretical and practical knowledge needed to forge a career in this competitive industry.

    Excellent partners across the city provide invaluable work experience and apprenticeships. From a PT course in collaboration with Firehouse Fitness, to a successful partnership with Collegiate Soccer, students get the chance to work in the industry and secure scholarships at top American universities.

    All programmes are tailored to suit a student’s goals or options, with numerous opportunities to progress on to university, apprenticeships or employment.

  • Channel 4

    Channel 4 sponsor

    Channel 4 was set up with a unique model as a ‘publisher-broadcaster’, meaning that we do not have any in-house production, but instead commission content from production companies throughout the UK.

    We are a self-sufficient business that reinvests all profits back into programmes, at zero cost to the taxpayer. A ‘Robin Hood’ model of cross-funding means programmes that make money pay for others that are key to delivering our remit but that are loss-making e.g. News and Current Affairs.

    Our twin goals as a content provider and business are to fulfil our remit and to be commercially self-sufficient.

  • Leeds Beckett
