Apprenticeships and School leaver Jobs in Leicester and Surrounding Areas

Leicester has the largest economy in the East Midlands with a Gross Value Added total of £15.3 billion. Apprenticeships are something that Leicester does in a big fashion too with 770 starts in 2005/6 growing to 2,950 in 2013, according to Office for National Statistics figures.

Leicester is home to businesses as large as Next, Jessops and Goldsmiths. The Walker crisp empire was started in Leicester and now makes over 10 million bags of crisps per day making it the UK's largest grocery brand. The city had a strong tradition of manufacturing in the textile industries and this has continued – albeit with some loss to Asian countries in recent years.

The main job sectors for aspiring apprentices and those leaving school are: engineering and machine tools (which have particularly strong formal academic-industrial connections), retail, food and drink manufacturing and financial services.
