Community & Citizenship

The Co-operative Academy of Leeds is keen to serve our local community. We are very proud of the diverse background of both our students and staff.

We will meet the needs of the community through a Community Learning programme. This includes a range of courses such as ICT, STEPS, Parenting Skills and English for those new to the language or developing language skills.

Where possible we provide staff who can translate into different languages to improve communication with parents.

We meet regularly with different community groups and hold a Community and Parents’ Forum each term.

Our students organise events which are open to the local community, such as our summer fair.

We have forged good links with local business who host work experience placements as well as contributing to our curriculum by providing relevant real life case studies. Our Business Mentors also play a key role in helping to raise the aspirations of our young people.
