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.
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.
My biggest accomplishment was finishing my Foundation Certificate in Accounting (AAT Level 2) course with distinction. It wasn’t easy, especially as I have to juggle my time with work, family and my studies. I am very happy with my result.
Being able to study subjects that I have never done before, and learning about different aspects of public services as a whole, and how they affect society.
I studied here doing Public Services Level 3 and loved it so I decided to stay for another year. I initially chose LMC as it was one of the few that taught Public Services, but also because it is a really good college.
I plan to continue to my studies to become a tutor as my end goal is to go back to the Army. I will do the top up degree and extra courses to get my qualifications.
Lancaster & Morecambe College has built and developed the skills I have today. It has offered me an opportunity to use my new found confidence and leadership skills to volunteer to run a volleyball club every Tuesday with another student.
I chose this course because I would like to pursue a career in Public Services and this course has given me a really good knowledge base to start a career.
The staff at LMC were amazing and were always there to help whenever you needed them. The trips that we went on were really beneficial, especially the week with the Army at Altcar training camp. The Great Tower trip at the start of the course meant that we could all get to know each other as well. I was also lucky enough to go to Slovakia as part of the European links.
I chose my course to get trained in a vocational skill, as after school I worked in jobs where I was very expendable - I want to be useful and break gender stereotypes.
I chose this course because I want to have a career as a joiner.
It is very hands on and practical, I’m not very academic and have a very practical way of thinking, so the way this course is run works well for me.
