Many of our students progress to the world of work or higher education, read our Alumni stories to find out where our students went after College.
The Business & Enterprise Level 3 course kickstarted my career more than I could have ever imagined. I gained so much from the course; knowledge, self-discipline, confidence, and I learnt so much about the industry.
The trips were amazing, we visited universities for competitions and campus tours, attended careers fairs, completed teamwork days at places such as Lancaster Escape Rooms and Great Tower and were even given opportunities to travel abroad. Our course offered international trips to Disneyland Paris and the opportunity to undertake a two-week, all expenses paid, work placement in Italy!
It has given me the chance to learn professional skills without being overburdened by the pressures expected in a full-time role. I’ve enjoyed not being too worried about being slow or making mistakes because I have had access to regular support from both my employer and the College.
With an Apprenticeship, you are learning all the time. It gives you fantastic experience in the working world and the hands-on training gives you a real chance to put your skills into practice. An Apprenticeship really helps you to gain confidence in a working environment.
To anyone thinking about starting an Apprenticeship I would say it’s a great idea. My Apprenticeship is allowing me to expand my industry knowledge and is helping me learn which job roles in the industry I’m best suited to. It is also helping me draw a clearer understanding of whether I want my next step to be university, or if I would like to continue with full time employment.
I would say that education is a door to a multitude of opportunities, and qualifications really do count. Find something you love and keep going, you won’t regret it. Education really can change your life!
I chose to enrol at college as I preferred the set up over 6th form, and it meant I'd be able to study business solitary, exploring the subject in more detail than an A level would. I specifically chose LMC due to the high quality level of tutoring offered. The college is also very well networked and linked with local businesses and universities- useful for gaining work experience, and progressing onto an apprenticeship or degree
I would say this course may not be the easiest, but the support you get from Sarah and Jon is unbelievable. I really couldn’t have achieved without them. They are a huge credit to the College.
College is very different from school in that there is more independence and I feel that it helps people get ready for the real world. The facilities like The Hex are also features which helped make my decision to come to college.
Business at Lancaster and Morecambe College was the best course to prepare me for the real world. I studied modules that educated me on every aspect of business including marketing, health and safety, management, entrepreneurship and lots more. As I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do after college, this was the perfect course which gave me lots of possible career paths after finishing.
If you’re wondering what the future holds and don’t know what to do, have a look at this course, it could be exactly for you! If it isn’t for you, remember it’s not for life. There no harm in giving it a try.
I have always been incredibly grateful to the College for giving me the skills and confidence I needed to pursue a career in professional services. I am equally grateful now for the opportunity to work with the College to help develop skills in the next generation and hopefully create for them the same opportunities that I enjoyed.
