Course taken at college:
CLAiT at MLC and Access at LMC in 1991

What were the best bits about your course? 

Stephen MossopThe best bits were being able to study a wide range of subjects, some of which I never imagined myself studying again after I left school! But all were very valuable in getting me to where I am today!

Why did you choose your course?
I wanted to learn more about how the basic computer programs worked, and decided that a short CLAiT course was a good place to start. Whilst studying the CLAiT award I discovered an interest in working with databases. I decided that I wanted to go to university to study the field further, but I needed a qualifications first and that was when my lecturer told me about the Access course!

Why did you choose Lancaster & Morecambe College?
I started off doing the ClAiT course at Morecambe Learning Centre and gained enough of an interest in databases to want to carry the subject on!

What would you say to someone who was thinking about doing the course?
Determination is key for this course; you have to put a lot of effort in but the results are well worth it! There is a lot of support available, so take advantage of it. I remember that one tutor told us to write a 2,000 word essay - it felt like writing a book! He gave us helpful guidance and hints which helped to get us through. Little did I know then that I’d end up years later, actually writing a book - and enjoying it!

Has studying with us helped with your job? How?
After the Access course I went to Lancaster University to study a degree in Computing, but changed to English after the first year and finished university with a 2:1 honours degree. After this I wanted to establish a career as a professional librarian so volunteered part time at Lancaster Library to gain some  experience, and was offered a 7 week placement at UCLan. From UCLan I moved onto a librarian course at Leeds Metropolitan University and after gaining the qualification went back to the UCLan library in a temporary post. After a while, I was offered a full time contract as an Information Officer. The next step for my career was to become the Senior Information Officer, and eventually Head of Technical Services. After a while, I decided it was time for a change and applied to become Head of Library Services at the University of Exeter. After 6 years of managing academic libraries, I finally retired and now spend my time writing books. I started off writing non-fiction about my experiences in managing academic libraries and how I achieved my goals, and then I moved on to writing fiction.

Anything else you would like to tell us?
Enrolling onto a course with LMC was the landslide event that started the whole process of my career!
