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.
Not only will you see a big improvement as a learner and a footballer, the Academy can offer many different opportunities and pathways for you to pursue. It is without a doubt the best environment for any footballer to flourish and excel in.
I would 100% recommended this course to anyone looking into it. Being involved with the reserve team was always a pleasure, you got to play with professional footballers. Not only was this a great achievement but having the opportunity to play against professional teams at professional stadiums is something I will never forget.
The best bit about my course was winning the league in my second year. Before the season started we had a few key players leave and I don’t think anybody truly believed that we could go and win it again, but we did, and I felt a great sense of pride.”
I always struggled at school but managed to excel much greater at college. The environment and support allowed me to be the best version of myself.
The best things about my course is that it is sport based. You get to try different sports as well as the ones you already know and the theory is done within this. I have developed a really good rapport with the tutors and they have always been happy to help and support us throughout the year.
The time I spent at LMC made me a much more confident person! It re-opened doors for me which I thought were closed for good. LMC also introduced me to Morecambe Ladies Football Club. I honestly believe a lot of the characteristics I cherish, which have made me a better soldier over the years, were gained at LMC.
There was always a friendly atmosphere around the sports centre, everyone got on well including students and staff. The college organised some fantastic trips including a stay at Club La Santa in Lanzarote, I went twice and it was a brilliant experience both times. It allowed me to meet people from different courses. Going to college was the best decision I made, the whole experience was great and it has helped me get to where I am today.
The atmosphere in and around college and the friends you meet which I still have contact with today. The opportunities that are available at LMC. I was lucky enough to work in Bulgaria on a Summer Sports Camp in 2008. I also fortunate to travel to Russia to work with a grammar school and had the opportunity to travel to Slovakia on two occasions for a skiing holiday.
Through completing my course at LMC it allowed me to get the grades to get into university even though I never stuck it out there. But LMC also helped me get the job I’ve got today. My current employers looked at what I had done at college and the experienced I gained there in the sports department.
The tutors and course enabled me to achieve a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport qualification. The qualification provided me with a platform to move forward with my education. The staff at LMC supported me with the UCAS application process for my career progression. Tutors and staff also provided additional coaching and assisted me with the relevant skills and qualities required to be successful when working with other people in a sporting environment.
The 4 years that I spent at LMC really helped me to define what I wanted to do when leaving college. Fitting my education around work and placements allowed me to ensure that I wanted to get a teaching degree to work with children. I have recently completed a 160 hour placement at the college, in which they were eager to ensure that I was able to work with students of all ages/abilities in both theory and practical lessons.
The opportunities that I have had for volunteering have been amazing. There has been plenty of chances for me to use the skills that I have accumulated on my course in a real work environment. I also had the chance to go to Bulgaria to coach children which was an amazing experience. I have also had an amazing opportunity to organise a Netball event for primary school children.
