It's not too late to apply for a course to start this September!
I enjoy helping young people achieve their GCSE English, a key qualification which will open doors for them in the future.
GCSE English and Teacher Education
When did you start working at LMC?
I started working here in August 2000.
What brought you to LMC?
I came to LMC to work with excluded Year 11 pupils, helping them make a fresh start in a new environment with a vocational focus.
What did you do prior to working here?
I taught English at Preston College. Prior to that, I was a Youth Worker in Carlisle, running a project for young people at risk of being involved in crime.
What is your favourite thing about your job?
I enjoy helping young people achieve their GCSE English, a key qualification which will open doors for them in the future. Also the fun and interesting conversations with teenagers as well as helping trainee teachers gain confidence and knowledge in their new role.
What is the best thing about the course(s) you teach?
The teacher training courses give lots of opportunity for interesting discussions and reading about the latest research in how people learn best. They focus on what really works in the classroom or workshop environment.
What are the best bits about working at College?
A sense of contributing to the wider community is definitely one of the best bits.
What would you say to someone who was thinking about joining your course?
Teaching is a challenging but very rewarding job. It takes a whole career to learn how to do it well – this course will give you a great start on that journey..
I would recommend LMC as a fantastic place to study sport and continue your development and interests in football. Your studies link to your football development as much as possible, helping you gain the knowledge, skills and experiences to pursue a career in sport in the future.
All you need to start the Supported Internship course is enthusiasm, motivation, energy and determination. As the course progresses, you will develop your employability, personal and social skills, which will enable you to increase your independence and develop your confidence and self-esteem. All of these new skills will ensure that you are better prepared to enter the workplace as a skilled and effective employee.
I really enjoy being part of the LMC Beauty Team and working within the department. Watching my students grow and develop their ideas and skillsets week on week is a really exciting part of my role, particularly when I can see them challenging themselves to get creative and try out new and different ideas.
I really enjoy passing on my joinery experiences and skills to the students, as well watching them develop into good citizens.
The best thing about our courses is that the teaching team have excellent industry experience with up-to-date equipment and materials. We are also very focused on all of our students achieving and being successful in their chosen careers.
Behind every great business is a fantastic accountant! AAT qualifications are highly valued and they can really push you to achieve great things in your career. The whole team at LMC are dedicated and excited about giving you the best possible start in your new journey!
