What did you do after College?
I was very fortunate to be offered a job with Virgin Trains the same week that I finished at college.
How did you get into your career?
I took part in a Virgin Trains interview assessment day at college that had been organised by my tutors. From this I was selected as a suitable candidate to complete my work experience placement at Lancaster station. When on my placement I impressed them so much with my hard work and dedication that I was offered a permanent position.
What were the best bits about your course?
The best part of being at college was the support and understanding I got from my tutors. I also make some really good friends and feel that the course prepared me well for employment.
Why did you choose Lancaster & Morecambe College?
I chose LMC as it is close to home so was convenient and I had heard good reviews about the courses.
How did LMC help you get where you are today?
Being at LMC boosted my confidence and gave me belief that I could achieve my goals.
What would you say to someone who was thinking about doing the same course?
Do it! It can lead to many different careers and the opportunities are endless.
Anything else you would like to tell us?
College gave me a second chance to improve my qualifications and get my dream job.
