LCC_Prospectus_Main_3.indd 7

He was one of the original members of the College’s Liverpool Enterprise Club, which encourages students with business ideas to work alongside local business mentors to turn their ideas into reality.

Liverpool City Region Over the next decade, there will be a shift in training from the traditional skills that were once the mainstay of the region to a new, multi-skilled workforce. The College offers the widest choice of qualifications and career paths for the skills needed to support the four growth areas that are set to transform the economy in and around the city. These four areas for growth have been identified as: • The SuperPort • Visitor Economy • Low Carbon Economy • The Knowledge Economy

The SuperPort It’s estimated that around 16,000 jobs will be needed for building and operating Liverpool’s SuperPort. It’s also expected that the SuperPort will stimulate growth in other business sectors, creating more jobs in professional services, ICT, maritime and tourism. Investment around the SuperPort should also stimulate long-term economic growth in the region, and enable Liverpool to regain its past prominence as an international gateway for goods and passenger transport.

Visitor Economy The Visitor Economy currently supports 37,000 jobs in retail, hotels, restaurants, conference venues, visitor attractions, cultural institutions, transport and tours, and the creative industries. The region’s natural attractions and wealth of culture and heritage sites will help the Visitor Economy grow from £1.3 billion annual turnover to £2 billion by 2020. The Visitor Economy will also link strongly with other key areas for growth, in particular, Liverpool’s SuperPort.

Low Carbon Economy Approximately 8,000 workers are currently employed in the energy and environmental technologies sector. New opportunities have been identified in areas such as renewable energy generation. Low carbon initiatives, including the River Mersey’s tidal energy potential, could generate a further 7,000 jobs in the region by 2015.

The Knowledge Economy Liverpool City Region has the capabilities to expand on its science, technology and knowledge based expertise by attracting businesses to the area that are reliant on innovation and excellence in research and development. It will allow the region to compete more effectively for investment, ideas and trade in an increasingly competitive global environment.

Vocational route Vocational qualifications (BTEC diplomas, certificates, NVQs) are great courses with a clear career focus. This route leads you on to Higher Education qualifications at the College or university or into employment.

Apprenticeship route Apprenticeships are ideal if you want to combine work with study. You come to College part-time and get the best of both worlds. Your qualifications can also gain you admission to Higher Education at the College while progressing in your career or at university.

Academic route A Levels and GCSEs are academic qualifications. They can be subjects you’ll know from school such as English, maths and science or new subjects such as media. This route can lead to you gaining higher level vocational qualifications or Higher Education at the College or university or into employment.

It offers great progression routes to careers and university

Moving towards Higher Education City 6 at Liverpool Community College offers a wide range of A-levels each year – and that alone makes us a perfect choice for pre-university study. However, it’s important to know that A-levels are not the only route into Higher Education. There are many paths you can take – it’s all about finding the one that suits you best.

A-levels / Level 3 BTEC Diplomas and NVQs The College offers a huge range of nationally recognised qualifications, with the extra skills that universities desire built in to the programmes. Whether you choose to do A-levels, a BTEC (equivalent to 3 A-levels) or NVQs that develop practical and industry-recognised skills, you can prepare for further study and progression in your chosen career.

Apprenticeships An Apprenticeship is an excellent way to earn while you learn. You gain an accredited qualification, while your employer benefits from having a well-trained, relevantly skilled and dedicated member of staff! An Apprenticeship can also be a passport to Higher Education qualifications, such as an HND, HNC or degree.

Access to HE and Foundation Degrees Often suited to adults looking to return to education, or those wishing to build up specialist skills, these courses – designed in partnership with employers and universities – provide an excellent platform to Higher Education. The College enjoys strong partnerships with universities awarding our degree qualifications. We meet frequently to ensure our higher level diplomas and degrees are constantly updated. Regular consultation with employers also maintains our training at current industry standards. Our university partners are Liverpool John Moores University, Edge Hill University and Manchester Metropolitan University.

Personal tutors When you apply to the College, you’ll have the opportunity to tell us all about ‘you’ – your circumstances, and any specific requirements you might have, whether personal, physical or career-related. This is important, as we can tailor our support to enable you to learn, develop and achieve in the way that’s best for you.

Learning Support Team First of all, you’ll be given your own personal tutor. Your tutor is not just there for your learning. They will care for you as a person, listen to any worries you might have, discover your hopes and goals and arrange further support if required. If you’re under 18 years, your tutor will also keep your parents up to speed on your progress.

Our dedicated Learning Support Team has extensive knowledge of different needs and how best to support them. They can help you with practical arrangements, both in class and around college, whether you have specific learning difficulties, dyslexia, physical disabilities, hearing and visual impairments, or other personal care needs.
