LOGIK - Learning Opportunities for Gaining Information and Knowledge
The LOGIK Centre was originally opened on 23rd June 2005 by the University’s Vice-Chancellor Professor Michael Arthur. Professor Arthur who said at the time: “The launch of this pioneering initiative is a very exciting event. We’re one of the first universities in the country to set up a scheme like this. The direction I want to take this university in will need a skilled workforce which is constantly learning, and I wish the centre every success.”
Since 2005 the LOGIK Centre has provided numerous courses which have been accessed by over 3000 university staff from all staff groups.
We produce a comprehensive course programme at least 3 times per year with courses ranging from African Drumming to Zumba! The LOGIK Centre, working in partnership with the Skills Network has been able to offer several NCFE accredited courses free of charge these have included Level 2 certificate in Customer Service, Level 2 certificate in Team Leading, Level 2 certificate in Equality & Diversity and Level 2 certificate in Mental Health Awareness. We are currently offering 16 NCFE accredited courses and we hope to be able to offer more in the future.
Not only do we offer in-house courses but we offer information, advice and guidance on courses of interest which are delivered at local colleges in your home location if requested.
Our team is able to give careers advice such as how to compile a CV, complete application forms and prepare for interviews. You can also request a mini- or full mock interview to be arranged for any job role that you are interested in.
The LOGIK Centre was set up as a learning centre specifically for staff with all that we do being at the request of and for the benefit of University of Leeds staff. So if you haven’t found us yet now is the time to pop in and see what we have to offer.
