Lancaster and Morecambe College
Lancaster & Morecambe College (LMC) is a public sector college of General Further Education and the main provider of Vocational and Adult Education and Training in North Lancashire and South Cumbria. It annually has around 1500 full-time students & 3000+ part-time or work based students. We have around 500 staff who all support each other in shared projects. LMC’s main role is to provide training in vocational skills to students of all ages and ability levels, leading to employment and/or academic skills leading to a place in higher education. LMC welcomes students of all ages and has well established courses in basic skills as well as initial teacher training and a range of business courses. LMC believes in making sure that their students and members of staff feel not only safe and valued but also supported to realise their potential. The LMC mission statement clearly sets out their role in the community, 'Providing Lancaster and Morecambe and surrounding communities with an outstanding student experience fulfilling vocational, personal and employment goals.' LMC success rates are in the top 10% of colleges in the UK, and the key to our success is a strong set of values which permeates all aspects of our college life including transnational activity. International Projects have played an increasingly important role in the personal and professional development of students and staff as well as the wider community. We are increasingly engaged in community activities and among the LMC curriculum offer is a large programme of informal learning and enrichment opportunities that serve to increase the quality of lives of students and those within the community.
