About Lancaster & Morecambe College

High quality technical, vocational and professional development programmes have always been at the very heart of the College, meeting the needs of young people, adults and employers.

The College serves communities across North Lancashire, South Cumbria and North Yorkshire in the north west of England, with a broad education and business development offer.

We continue to invest and improve the facilities on campus to enable students to maximise their learning, this includes the multi-million pound investment in industry standard facilities for Construction and Hair & Beauty, as well as new Music and Media facilities and student Lounge area.

The College provides students with the opportunity to enter and progress through various levels of study. Students who progress from our College are ‘work ready’. We work closely with industry to help shape the most appropriate courses as we strive to provide our students with the best possible chance of progression in the future, while making sure they fully enjoy their time at College.

Our students also contribute to the wider community in a variety of ways, through fundraising and their involvement in work-based learning, as well as the considerable hours of vital volunteering work they undertake with a range of age groups throughout our area.

We offer:

  • Apprenticeships & Traineeships
  • Art & Design
  • Creative Digital Media & Music
  • Computing & Business
  • Travel & Tourism
  • Hospitality & Catering
  • Hairdressing & Beauty Therapy
  • Construction & Engineering
  • Child Education, Health & Social Care

We pride ourselves on our dedicated lecturers and support staff who help students overcome barriers to become a success on their course and develop as confident and empowered individuals

International Mobility

Lancaster & Morecambe College have been running European work experience projects for over a decade and were one of the first colleges in the UK to receive the Leonardo Certificate in Quality for Mobility. This was in recognition for our commitment to offering high quality European work placements and developing a strategic approach to embedding this activity across the curriculum.

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 have used past projects to research, develop and implement many initiatives into mainstream practice. The core activities of the college are supported by these projects and they also allow us to work locally, regionally, nationally and internationally on positive initiatives.
