Courses Taken: AAT Accounting Level 3, ESOL, Functional Skills Maths & English
Years Studied: 2022 - 2024

LMC emerged as the perfect fit for my academic journey as they offer a program that seamlessly transitioned me from my functional skills studies into an AAT Acounting qualification. The knowledge I gain from studying this course is very valuable as it allows me to build a strong foundation of knowledge as well as handling my practical skills.

Courses Taken: Access to HE
Years Studied: 2023-2024

I was out of education for 24 years and it was just so daunting the idea of studying again. Don’t be scared to give it ago and have a chat with the college and make that first point of contact. Once you’ve done that you feel like it’s doable. The course is challenging but manageable if you commit to it. Ultimately, I wouldn’t have been able to progress in to University without it.

Courses Taken: Business Administration Level 3
Profession: Administrative Assistant
Years Studied: 2022-2023

I really enjoyed the project aspect of my apprenticeship, as I got the chance to work on an area of the business which previously I didn’t have anything to do with as part of my day-to-day role. As a result of this I learnt a lot about the project area and worked with new colleagues from across the institution. Writing my project report and presentation helped me to recognise the progress I had made and the impact the project had on the institution, as well as identify the new skills I learned.

Courses Taken: Hairdressing Level 2, Theatrical & Media Make-up Level 3
Profession: Hair and Makeup Junior
Years Studied: 2014-2017

I would say to anyone wanting to start a career in Hair and Makeup within the Film and Television industry if you are serious and committed to it then go for it! It is an extremely competitive and fast paced environment but if you are willing to put the work in you will be able to do some amazing projects, travel and progress artistically.

Because of my age I never thought I would be able to do GCSE English and Maths again. Michelle and Barbara were absolutely amazing, they were so patient and gave me the help and encouragement I needed to believe in myself.

My experience with resitting in college couldn’t have gone better, and if there is anyone who may have to resit at LMC in the future here are my tips:

  • If you give 100% so will your tutors
  • Make the most of the lessons as they go very quickly leading up to the exam
  • Don’t be scared! The tutors are tutors for a reason and they are amazing at their jobs.

It’s all thanks to the course I took and my amazing tutors, that I now have my dream career! I would highly recommend the course to anyone wanting to go to university, without the Access course I would never have had the opportunity as I only had 1 GCSE when I left high school.
