If you want to join one of the public services, you need to do this course! It improves your knowledge on each specific role within the public services and gives you opportunity to meet those in the industry currently.
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.
During my time at LMC I have won 3 separate awards for being the “Apprentice of the Year”, one from LMC, one from APSE and also one from Lancaster City Council.
I feel like I have gone from strength to strength after leaving College. After winning the Skills Build award whilst still at college, I have now been accepted into the Institute of Carpenters (LIOC) at the grade of Licentiate in recognition of my achievements at College.
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 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.
