Apprenticeship Open Evening 2024

Posted: 12.02.2024

As part of this year’s National Apprenticeship Week (#NAW24) LMC welcomed around 30 local, regional and national employers and over 300 visitors onto campus last week for their annual Apprenticeship Open Evening.

Current LMC learners were given the chance to meet with businesses from across a wide range of sectors to discuss recruitment and career progression opportunities, before the doors were opened to the wider community, who were able to tour the campus, meet with tutors and chat with employers. The College’s Employer Engagement and Apprenticeship teams were joined by representatives from BAE Systems, EDFICS Accounting, Standfast & Barracks, Forsberg, NHS and dozens of other businesses from the Care, Early Years, Construction, Electech, Health and Leisure sectors who were on hand to advise about career routes into their specific industry.

Although the evening had a focus on apprenticeships, the whole campus was open to the public who had the opportunity to visit the immersive VR Suite, Bay Restaurant, Hair & Beauty Salons, Health Ward and specialist curriculum workshops, including Construction, Engineering, Animal and Land-Based, Art, Design and Creative Digital Media.

The College’s Student Ambassadors were on hand to discuss all aspects of College life and the Student Engagement and Pastoral teams chatted with parents and prospective learners about the range of support available. Information was also available about new full-time and apprenticeship courses that are being launched in September 2024 including; T Levels in Design & Development, Engineering & Manufacturing and Animal Management; L3 IT Solutions Apprenticeship and L3 Forensic Science.

This week also marked the culmination of the College’s ambitious 200 in 200 campaign, where they aimed to support businesses to create 200 new Apprenticeship vacancies in 200 days. By the close of play, a phenomenal 206 work-based learning vacancies had been created during the time-scale, with the promise of more to come.

Charlotte Rawes, LMC’s Vice Principal Progress and Performance, is proud of the College’s success;

“We are delighted with the success of this campaign, where we have supported businesses to tackle skills & recruitment shortages across various sectors. We know apprenticeships are an enabler to a great career and improve productivity within businesses and we want to help as many local people as possible.”
