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 chose Lancaster & Morecambe College because the Public Services course was a challenge but this came with growth and opportunities. The course was a combination of physical and mental challenges. Additionally, we were given the opportunity of meaningful work experience placements, student support at this college is amazing, from providing one to one help in the classroom to offering advice, study support and financial guidance for students.
This course has been a gateway for me as a performer to move on to bigger and better things. The tutor is so inclusive and understanding. She doesn’t want to highlight what I can’t do because of my disability so she’s choreographed showcases and dances where I can achieve. I have been really lucky that my tutor believes in me so that I can perform as best as I can.
The ability to do both theory and practical work in the same area really appeals to me. The tutors and my classmates are great too.
I am learning lots of new things on my course and have had the chance to do work experience as well. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and support me well with my studies.
The courses gave me confidence to apply for the jobs I wanted and prepared me with what to say and how to act throughout the interview process. I really enjoyed the cabin crew course, I visited so many new places, which I wouldn’t have experienced had I not joined the LMC course.
Lancaster & Morecambe College helped me to increase confidence in myself, not just teaching me the basics of classical cookery, but enabling me to achieve as much as I want to achieve. It was there that I realised you can get as much out of your chosen career as you put in, it’s all about having the motivation, a good group of people around you, and the ethic to work, work, work! I was awarded ‘Apprentice of the Year 2011’ which I was extremely grateful for and really topped off my time here.
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.
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.
My best bit about the course was being selected for Bulgaria. This was a great life experience and it helped me gain confidence. I had a brilliant time. We also took a trip to Poland, this was another great experience the college offered. We visited a number of historic places. I also enjoyed the different topics of Public Services and the knowledge they offered.
