About the employer

Landau Forte College Derby was purpose built and opened in 1992 as the 14th City Technology College in England. As one of the original City Technology Colleges nationally it was a founding member of the City Technology Colleges Trust which has grown into the specialist schools movement known as the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust. In 2005 we were invited by HM Government to change our status from a College to an Academy and on 1 September 2006, after an agreement was reached between our Primary Sponsors the Landau Charitable Foundation and Rocco Forte Hotels Plc, we successfully completed the change.
