Forster Community College

Forster Community College is a successful social enterprise providing vocational education and training across the Leeds City Region. Established in 1982, the College’s mission is to inspire and support people who have yet to fulfil their potential. The most recent Ofsted report stated:

Well-qualified and experienced tutors plan sessions skilfully and enthusiastically to include a good range of practical activities that involve learners fully and help them to apply and extend their learning

Learners enjoy attending the College and their sessions greatly. A strong feature of the College is the way learners have developed the right attitude to support each other, work well together, and recognise the life-changing progress that they are making.

Forster Community College has a strong culture of inclusion, respect and opportunity for all learners. Dedicated managers, tutors and staff know their individual learners well and support them very effectively to overcome their barriers to participation and progress.
