It's not too late to apply for a course to start this September!
I am glad I did the Apprenticeship as it has helped me develop in my role. It has given me a greater understanding of being a manager and leader.
Nahim had worked in the care sector for more than 5 years before he started his Team Leading Apprenticeship Level 3. Initially, as an adult learner, he was hesitant as to how an apprenticeship would impact on his working life, but he is glad he completed the course as he has been able to develop in his role and gain a greater understanding of being a manager and a leader.
I chose to undertake the apprenticeship to learn and develop, both personally and professionally. The apprenticeship I chose was appropriate for me to develop in my role and I am really glad that I did as it has helped me progress on my career path.
As an apprentice, Nahim attended College twice a month and also had 1-1- meetings with his assessor. He also took part in both English & Maths Functional Skills classes alongside his apprenticeship, to ensure that he was up to date with the qualifications he needed to pass the end point assessment of his Apprenticeship.
As part of my Apprenticeship I had to work on my portfolio and undertake off the job hours. The work required for the Apprenticeship is more coursework based which avoids the examination process. The Apprenticeship enabled me to continue working whilst I was learning and I was able to put into practice my learning in “real time”.
Nahim said he gained lots of skills whilst undertaking his Apprenticeship, including time management techniques, more confidence and belief in himself which he didn't have after stepping back into education after 20 years.
When asked if he would recommend the Team Leading Apprenticeship Level 3 to other adult learners, Nahim said:
I would recommend it 100 per cent, as it will first allow you to gain a qualification but most importantly it will allow you to gain lots of knowledge that can be applied within your role and your sector.
The next steps for Nahim is to look at gaining a Management and Leadership (Level 5) CMI qualification, to further advance his skill set and then go into self-employment within the care sector, specifically focusing on supported housing.
I enjoy being part of the team and thinking of new ways to support local businesses in realising their potential. Watching learners transition from a one-day course to gaining qualifications motivates me to continue teaching at LMC.
Industry specific apprenticeships are a great way to learn new skills and knowledge, achieve a recognised qualification and earn a wage. Customer service is the corner stone of every successful business, and courses at LMC will help you identify, improve and introduce these skills successfully.
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!
It’s really difficult to state just one thing I love about working at Lancaster & Morecambe College because there are so many! I really wanted to work here because the college has a fantastic reputation. I love introducing new ways of working and keeping up with relevant trends to improve the course, and I really enjoy the supportive environment that we create for our students. We also work closely with our Pastoral Mentors and Apprenticeship Progress Coaches to support our students academically as well as look after their wellbeing too.
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!
The Business Administration Apprenticeship at LMC gives you a plethora of transferable skills which can lead you to your chosen career pathway. It teaches you the foundations of customer service, information and communication technology (ICT), administration, business, and soft skills such as effective communication, teamwork and organisational skills. It is the perfect starting point to your career!
