Ryann Williams, Head of Construction
“During my time at College starting from Level 1 plumbing, I have become more capable and confident in my skills and now after completing my level 3 Plumbing course I have been employed by LMC first as a technician and now as a member of the Estates team. Thanks to the support of the staff members, now my colleagues, I was able to improve both my skills and myself and I continue to do so, working with so many people with various skills and talents.”
Dan Jones, Level 3 Plumbing
Past students have gone on to higher courses in Construction and the Built Environment. Also, many have gained full time employment as plumbing and heating engineers, carpenters and joiners, civil engineers and working in architects’ offices at employers such as Costain, Rogerson, Bowker, Duckett and Russell Armer. From our full time courses in Brickwork, Carpentry & Joinery, Plumbing, Electrical Installations and Apprenticeships, many of our students go on to start their own business both locally and regionally.
