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 really enjoy passing on my joinery experiences and skills to the students, as well watching them develop into good citizens.
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.
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.
The best thing about our courses is that the teaching team have excellent industry experience with up-to-date equipment and materials. We are also very focused on all of our students achieving and being successful in their chosen careers.
