On 20 March 2020, colleges and universities across the UK were closed in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. @LeicesterColl was no exception and since then, with the city of Leicester moving into new tiers and different lockdown restrictions, the College has faced a number of challenges, primarily with the changing delivery of courses but also with the way in which it communicates with existing and potential new students.
@LeicesterColl will complete major new building works at its Abbey Park Campus to support the new #TLevels programme. The refurbishment work will be funded by a successful application to the Department for Education’s T Level Capital Fund 2020-21. This will significantly improve facilities for students on the new T Levels technical study programmes starting in September 2021.
