The County Council is the education authority for the county. Its website has sections on education that cover:

The education area of the Leicestershire County Council site also provides information on the following subjects:

Community Education, Education Services, A-Z listing Information about Schools, Information for Schools, Leicestershire Local Education Authority, Leicestershire Grid for Learning, Libraries, Museums, Education News, Parents Guide to Education, Special Educational Needs Teaching in Leicestershire and details on how to contact the Education Department.

Further and Higher Education Providers

Youngsters interested in further education may also find the Student Outreach & Recruitment (SOAR) website of interest.  The SOAR team works with a range of groups and organisations, including primary and secondary schools and community groups, to help explain the benefits of a university degree in an interesting, fun and fairly informal way.
