The College of West Anglia partners with Sandringham Estate to provide work experience for Travel, Tourism and Business Students.
Travel, Tourism and Business students from the College of West Anglia (CWA) have had the opportunity to experience the daily running of a prestigious tourist attraction through work experience placements in Visitor Operations at the Sandringham Estate. This year, nine students have completed work experience in visitor operations at Sandringham House and Gardens, rotating roles in admission, visitor services and retail which will contribute towards their final qualification. The experience has taken on a particular significance, with activities for The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee running throughout the year.
Work experience forms a significant part of further education courses at CWA, with all students carrying out at least 30 hours of work experience with a local employer.
