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.
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.
Think where you want to be in “x” many years and then you can tailor your Apprenticeship to not only support your current role, but also to prepare you for later challenges and opportunities in your career. It’s a fantastic opportunity, go for it!
The best part of my course has been the placement opportunities, there are so many places in the local area that offer amazing placements and I’ve been lucky enough to work with three separate employers – they have all been brilliant!
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.
LMC prepared me to go out into the workplace. The tutors gave me a great insight into the hospitality industry, as well as teaching me the key skills that I needed, and I’m very grateful for that. LMC has the tools & knowledge to set you up on your journey to becoming a young chef so I would say, go for it!
As a mature student returning to college, I always felt comfortable and welcome. The tutors have been extremely approachable and are flexible to the classes needs. They are always open to questions and have guided us through the work at a steady yet comprehensible pace.
Distance Learning was different because I could learn at my own pace, although there are deadlines, the course gives you more than enough time to complete your units, and the learner section is very in depth and easy to follow.
The course tutors were incredibly supportive during the application process and it was amazing to have them on my side, especially with Amanda having that cabin crew experience herself.
The advice I’d give to anyone considering an apprenticeship is to just do it, if you’re not enjoying what you do now, just go and do something you enjoy.
I’ve learnt so many skills since the start of my apprenticeship, so many skills that I couldn’t have learnt on my own.
Before starting my Apprenticeship, I had very little confidence in myself and found it hard to do anything that involved stepping outside of my comfort zone, so being here has really helped.
