New 'Courses in the Community' Launching for Spring 2022

Posted: 11.02.2022

Lancaster & Morecambe College (LMC) is working in conjunction with Dallam School to deliver a suite of new daytime courses for members of the wider community.

Sandwiched comfortably between the Lake District, the Forest of Bowland, and the Yorkshire Dales, Dallam’s rural setting makes it an ideal place to immerse yourself in a new skill. The Adult & Community Team at LMC are pleased to offer the exciting range of arts, history and philosophy courses, taught by passionate experts within their fields who are equipped and keen to distribute their knowledge to members of the local community.

Following its 2020 Ofsted inspection, the College is proud to expand its offering of adult education based on the feedback and experiences of previous students: 

Learners on adult learning programmes brim with enthusiasm about their learning. Learners say that they have fallen in love with learning and feel that their programmes help them to achieve their full potential.

The courses will be based at Dallam School’s Heversham and Milnthorpe sites, as well as Leighton Hall, and are an opportunity for anybody wishing to explore their creative side and quench a thirst for further learning. 

Wes Johnson, LMC Principal, commented:
