My biggest accomplishment since leaving College is the progress I have made over the years to becoming a fully qualified Barber. I now have regular returning clients who are happy with my services, and lots of barbering knowledge which has helped me improve my skills and enable me to progress to the position I am at now.
Reece started his Barbering career after securing a job at Prestige Salon & Barbers in Lancaster. He started the Barbering Level 2 course at Lancaster & Morecambe College in 2019, and very quickly realised that he really enjoyed it, and that it would become a lifetime skill that he would never lose. Choosing to study at LMC was an easy decision for Reece to make after speaking to other people doing the course and them saying how good it was.
The Barbering course at LMC helped Reece to gain the key skills to become a fully qualified Barber with Prestige. He really enjoyed both the practical and theory sides of the course, but the skill he is most proud that he developed is how he is able to interact with clients in a professional manner to make them feel comfortable. Another skill that the course offered was gaining the ability to cut and style many different hair types with confidence, which enables Reece to cut his regular client’s hair and also any new clients he will gain in the future.

My responsibilities are now to look after new and regular clients, providing the best service possible to ensure that they return to the salon, and tell their friends and family about their experience with Prestige.
When asked what advice would he give to someone thinking of doing the Barbering course Reece said:
The barbering course at LMC is very good. I would recommend it to any aspiring young barbers who are looking to gain a lifelong skill to apply today. Since qualifying I have built my clientele quickly and am thriving in the barbering industry with the skills I learnt at LMC.
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.
I love working at Lancaster & Morecambe College with such an amazing team that are passionate about delivering outstanding teaching across the departments. The Apprenticeship courses at LMC are well developed programmes that offer students amazing opportunities and experiences, whilst allowing them to earn while they learn as they progress through the Apprenticeship.
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.
I love working with such keen and dedicated staff and students. I also like how every day is different because we attract such a wide range of students including year 11 from local high schools aged 16-18 who apply to the full time courses, to adult students who attend the part time courses. It’s nice to work with so many people from all different backgrounds and cultures who share a passion for cooking.
Come and join us here as LMC! You’ll gain new skills, use industry standard equipment, be taught by a dedicated team of specialists who are passionate about educating you to a higher skills level, so that you can gain an Apprenticeship or full time employment.
