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.
I hope to get a job in the industry - I volunteer at Blackpool Transport, and hope to gain a job in the maintenance workshop working on the trams which run along Blackpool’s promenade.
I hope to complete my Level 2 course at college and then start my Apprenticeship with BAE in September this year.
If you like to get your hands dirty and get stuck in then the Carpentry & Joinery Apprenticeship course would be a good choice, and you also get paid while you learn.
My tutor made the lessons fun. I really miss playing the game Taboo as it really helped me develop my vocabulary. I didn’t find the preparation for exams stressful as the content of the course was well organised, explained and delivered. I was given information about mock exams in plenty of time so I always knew what I was working towards and what I needed to improve on. My tutor always made time for me and provided many opportunities for extra revision.
The best things for me were meeting new friends and learning about cabin crew and the travel industry from behind the scenes. I also enjoyed completing the fire and smoke training with Thomas Cook.
I really enjoyed learning about aviation past and present during the course. The role play situations were also useful as they helped to prepare me for interviews and the world of work.
I am thoroughly enjoying my time as a travel consultant, without Lancaster & Morecambe College I wouldn’t have had the confidence to reach out to different workplaces and be where I am today.
An apprenticeship gave me the opportunity to work and earn while I learn, fast-tracking my career. I knew it would provide me with knowledge and skills needed to progress. Being able to apply my theoretical knowledge gained from the course into real workplace situations has helped me perform better at work and progress faster.
The course enabled me to work in a professional environment and really familiarise myself with the practical application of the skills we were learning. It was great being able to test my skills with location recordings and it showed me how I can fully utilise a space or piece of technology.
The college is accessible as a local resident and I find that tutors and staff are really nice and friendly and make you feel welcome. I really enjoyed my time at College last time, so it was the best choice for me as I already knew what the college was like.
Do it, but don’t be half-hearted. The music courses aren’t doss courses for people to take when they’re undecided on what they want to do in life. They are there for people who have a passion for music and want to take up a job somewhere in the industry later in life, they will push you and stretch you in the ways that you need to have a chance of making a successful career.
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.
