Learning the art of Business and Marketing is the single most useful thing you’ll ever do in your life. Business and Marketing are a huge part of every single industry in the world. Do it!

Olivia Hammond works in the Apprenticeship Team providing teaching and guidance to learners on the Business Admin & Marketing Level 3 Apprenticeships

Olivia began her journey with LMC seven years ago as an Admin Trainee, and after using the knowledge gained from her studies, she went on to work in a variety of roles in the business industry. She returned to Lancaster & Morecambe College (LMC) four years later as a full-time administrator, before becoming an Apprenticeship Adviser. 

As an Apprenticeship Adviser, Olivia carries out regular activities with apprentices such as; training sessions on Business Admin & Marketing, introducing and teaching new Skills Development Academy sessions, and working on our Apprenticeship Induction Days. When asked what her highlight of the role is, she said:

I enjoy running the Skills Development Academy, we have some really interesting sessions, such as ‘Introduction to Cryptocurrency’ and ‘Entrepreneurship Skills’ and it’s nice to see the apprentices get so much from developing the extra skills and knowledge we cover.

Outside of working at LMC, Olivia works with The Dukes Theatre, Travellers Times and The Traveller Movement on a consultancy basis, alongside various other organisations, using the skills she has developed throughout her time at LMC as both a learner and staff member to support these ventures. 

Some of her most exciting opportunities have included meeting with various Lords in Westminster’s Houses of Parliament, appearing in a segment on ITV News Granada Reports, and proofreading/co-writing an episode of ‘The Bill.’

Olivia commented:

When you push yourself in the business world, the opportunities are endless.
