Student Life

Here at Lancaster & Morecambe College (LMC) we look to enrich students’ experiences through offering a variety of exciting opportunities to develop industry and social skills. We also offer a range of support and guidance services to ensure all learners get the most out of their College experiences. 

We want every learner on our campus to feel safe, secure and supported and that is why we encourage learners to utilise our Safer College CommunityStudent Money and Additional Learning Support teams amongst others, learn how we can support you during your time at College.

Course Trips, Visits & Guest Speakers

Throughout our study programmes we look to embed a range of industry related activities to help our learners gain greater insight into industry opportunities as well as giving learners the opportunity to experience teaching from external sources.

All of our courses offer a range of trips, visits and guest speaker opportunities. Examples include Cabin Crew Level 2 learners visiting an aviation training centre, and Business & Enterprise Level 3 and Travel & Tourism Level 3 learners receiving a visit from Lewis Ellis, BBC One's The Apprentice contestant and travel company owner.

International Learning

As part of our commitment to working internationally, we send staff and students abroad for professional and personal development, increasing their cultural understanding and industry knowledge on an international scale.

Examples of recent international trips include:

  • Sports & Public Services students preparing summer holiday activities in Bulgaria
  • Animal Care students shadowing experts in Poland and Italy
  • Business and Travel & Tourism students attending the Business Lab Expo in Disneyland Paris
  • Sport, Public Services and Health & Social Care students visiting Poland to increase international understanding 

Work Experience

All Full Time learners at LMC undertake work experience as part of their study programmes. This allows learners to put theory learnt throughout their course into practice and gives them the practical experiences to help them explore potential career routes. Work experience ranges from two weeks in industry to a two day weekly block release depending on the learners’ course. 

We have links to over 700 employers through our Apprenticeship and Traineeship provision so there are a wide range of local employers happy to work with our learners. We encourage Level 3 learners to source their own work experience as this gives them job acquisition experience however, we have a dedicated team available to support learners in securing their placements.  

National Citizen Service (NCS)

Learners on courses such as Sport, Public Services, Construction and Aspire, undergo the Autumn NCS programme as part of their course induction. This gives students a chance to bond with each other in an external environment, build key employability skills and increase their confidence through challenging themselves. 

Student Ambassadors

Learners are offered the opportunity to work with the College’s Marketing team providing assistance at marketing events throughout the year. This gives the ambassadors the opportunity to share their experiences with prospective learners, gain work experience in events and marketing, and earn some money for activities outside of College hours.  

Opportunities include assisting with:

  • Open evenings
  • School visits
  • Campus tours
  • Market research
