Newark College's business students went behind-the-scenes at the intu Victoria Centre in Nottingham
Newark College teamed up with intu in Nottingham to give its business students invaluable behind-the-scenes access into the inner workings of a shopping centre.
Seventeen students, currently studying their BTEC level three extended diploma in business, learned about what goes into the day-to-day management of the intu Victoria Centre, Nottingham.
The tour covered various aspects of retail and ended with a question-and-answer session.
Nicola McCabe, marketing manager for intu in Nottingham, said: “It was a pleasure to meet this year’s students and to provide them with some practical experience to support their studies.
“We also got to hear from the students about the retail projects they are working on.
“We hope some of the information we shared will come in handy and we wish them all the best with their submissions.”
Amanda Bradford, a lecturer at Newark College, said: “Opportunities to gain real-life experience and insights are invaluable for a course such as a BTEC level three extended diploma in business, which is why our partnership with intu is so important.
“Textbooks and lectures can only teach students so much, but getting the chance to visit intu Victoria Centre and to hear from the intu team gives them the chance to see what they have been taught in the classrooms in action.”
