I enjoy helping young people achieve their GCSE English, a key qualification which will open doors for them in the future.
I teach a subject that I am passionate about and transfer my knowledge and skills to our students. I also work with an amazing team, every day is different and a unique challenge - the job is never boring!
I enjoy being part of the team and thinking of new ways to support local businesses in realising their potential. Watching learners transition from a one-day course to gaining qualifications motivates me to continue teaching at LMC.
LMC is a great community asset and I think the local district are lucky to have such a modern, flexible and engaging place of education.
I really enjoy passing on my joinery experiences and skills to the students, as well watching them develop into good citizens.
Come and join us here as LMC! You’ll gain new skills, use industry standard equipment, be taught by a dedicated team of specialists who are passionate about educating you to a higher skills level, so that you can gain an Apprenticeship or full time employment.
