It has been good to challenge myself and not just always settle for the easy option. LMC taught me that facing challenges can be an effective way of gaining more skills and it has shown me that there’s so much you can achieve when you put your mind to it.


Lydia Corney decided to study Children's Play, Learning & Development Level 2 as she was one of six siblings and thought this experience could be built upon to help form her career. A year later, Lydia is now on the Children’s Play, Learning & Development Level 3 course where she can continually demonstrate her existing abilities whilst developing new skills within class and on work placement.  

Lydia particularly enjoys her work placement opportunities as they are helping her plan for the future: 

Placement has been a great way of understanding what it is like to work alongside children, as well as other practitioners and teachers, from a variety of backgrounds. This has allowed me to gain a wider understanding of the industry and is helping me to build a clearer plan of what I want to do in the future.

So far within her course, Lydia described that the key skills she has developed are her confidence, which has led her to be more involved in class discussions, as well as her ability to work effectively in a team with other practitioners. Lydia credits the College for helping her to push herself to improve on these capabilities, saying: 

It has been good to challenge myself and not just always settle for the easy option. LMC taught me that facing challenges can be an effective way of gaining more skills and it has shown me that there’s so much you can achieve when you put your mind to it.

Lydia also explained that College has helped her socially, as coming to College has given her the opportunity to meet a range of new people and make some friends for life. 

When asked what advice she would give to somebody considering studying the Children’s Play, Learning & Development Level 3 course, Lydia said: 

For anyone thinking about doing this course I would say go for it, all the tutors I’ve been taught by have always been so helpful and you receive so much encouragement throughout the course.
