This is a full time course which helps “bridge the gap” between school and college.
You do not need any qualifications to join. You will need a willingness to learn, a commitment to your studies, a satisfactory record of attendance and want to develop your independence and progress onto further higher level courses or employment.
The course is suitable for young people who want to:
Enhance and develop their employability skills
Build their confidence
Improve their functional and personal skills
Work within a small, supportive environment
You will study the following:
Functional Skills in Maths and English
Skills for Learning and Work
All students aged 16-19 who do not have a grade 4 (C) or higher in GCSE English and Maths are required to study either Functional Skills or GCSE English and/or Maths as part of their course.
If you have a grade 3 (D) at GCSE, you will study English and/or Maths GCSE.
If you have a grade 2 (E) or lower at GCSE, you will study English and/or Maths Functional Skills.
Students aged 19+ are strongly encouraged to take relevant maths and English qualifications to support progression into further or higher education, training or employment. All LMC students will receive tutorial support.
Many students move onto a full time course to gain a vocational qualification and others find employment, or a Traineeship.
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.
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 enjoy helping young people achieve their GCSE English, a key qualification which will open doors for them in the future.
I enjoy sharing my knowledge and experience of animals with students and seeing a learners journey as they make progress.
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.
