The Engineering department at Lancaster & Morecambe College has a successful training programme for apprentices and advanced apprentices for Fabrication & Welding. Full time courses are offered in Fabrication & Welding, Maintenance Engineering and Electrical Installations. LMC is increasing its training provision for students who are looking to a future in the engineering sector. Companies are increasing their intake of engineering apprentices, with the aim of developing and retaining their skills base.
