    Welcome to our new 2016/17 prospectus, which is brimming with a whole range of possibilities for your future career.

    LMC is a specialist vocational college offering an exceptional experience to all our students, whether you are a school leaver or an adult returning to education. LMC is the place to learn work-related skills that will prepare you for your dream job that matches your interests and aptitude. You can choose from a wide range of job-related courses from BTECs to NVQs to Apprenticeships, all delivered by industry qualified staff who are experts in their own fields.

    The Colleges innovative curriculum, which focuses on developing employability skills and attitudes, is clearly aligned with the needs of employers. The success of studying at LMC is evident with 90% of our students progressing into work, further study or Higher Education.

    Whilst we expect you to work hard and achieve your goals, we also want you to develop as a person, to enjoy yourself and be part of the LMC community where relationships between staff and students are invariably friendly and respectful.

    This creates a purposeful, happy and safe campus where everyone is treated as an individual, whilst still acknowledging the whole range of support needs by providing outstanding support services including learning support, careers guidance, counselling and financial advice.

    Our 14m capital investment over the last three years has enabled us to provide a campus-style, state-of-the-art learning environment that is unmatched locally and is one of the best in the North West. With this in mind, I would like to warmly invite you to see for yourself by attending one of our Open Evenings where you can meet the tutors and experience the quality of our facilities.

    The world of work is changing and becoming more demanding but, with our links with over 400 employers and delivering 500 apprenticeships across over 30 occupational areas, has there ever been a better time to discover your future at LMC?
