“I did my Level 3 Beauty Therapy course this year and loved every minute. I always learnt something new every day and enjoyed practically doing everything. The tutors were brilliant with us and pushed us to succeed! My experience at Lancaster & Morecambe College was great and I felt welcomed and safe always. Highly recommended.”
