The North Lancashire Business Expo is a unique event which sees businesses and visitors all invited to showcase our amazing North Lancashire.  A business showcase which brings stakeholders in the region together for a day of discovery and connection, with exhibitors, stands and talks. North Lancashire is an amazing place. It has unique locations, warm, friendly people and a rich, growing business community. We believe that it deserves a gateway to allow people and organisations to discover all of that in one place… to get a taste of why North Lancashire is important. Now and in the future.

This event which will include local businesses exhibiting within a marquee on the College car park. The College will be closed to students on this day, but will be open to the general public. The North Lancashire Business Expo offers exhibitors and visitors a unique opportunity, so why not join us on the day.

Read Our Principal's Welcome

Following our fantastic Ofsted Inspection in March 2020, I am really proud that we did not close our doors to our most vulnerable students at any point during lockdown, instead we produced over 16,000 meals for vulnerable members of our community, hundreds of items of PPE for our NHS and moved learning online in a matter of days.

In line with government expectations, we have now reopened for face-to-face education and have seen masses of young people and adults enrol to progress their skills and careers.

LMC has won a number of awards for embedding ‘citizenship’ into its curriculum and this remains a high priority this year. As your community college we pride ourselves on offering opportunities for all, and we are committed to supporting our local employers through economic recovery, whilst shaping their workforces of the future.

I remain hugely optimistic looking forward, not only for our College but also for the Lancaster and Morecambe District. There are some great opportunities on the horizon, once we have navigated these difficult times together.

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

Despite the challenges faced due to Covid-19, the LMC Community has continued to carry out collaborative projects with local residents and organisations.

 

  • We produced over 20,000 meals to be distributed out to the most vulnerable in our community, in collaboration with Eggcup and local supermarkets
  • We joined the National College for Nuclear as an accredited provider of groundbreaking courses in Engineering. 
  • We gave parents from local school, Ryelands Primary, free cooking classes in the basics of cookery, enabling them to cook at home for their families. 
  • We hosted video calls with local primary schools to offer insight into Further Education from a young age, boosting their confidence and aspirations.
