All the fun of the fair!

Date Posted: 29/09/2016 | Posted In: Latest news

QE’s second year Travel and Tourism students started the term with an educational and fun trip to Lightwater Valley near Ripon in North Yorkshire. To help them with their studies, they had a talk from the attraction’s Sales Manager about the various aspects of his job, the roles of other members of staff at the theme park and an explanation of how such a popular tourist destination is run. The talk really gave the students an excellent insight into a career in the tourism industry. After the talk the students then enjoyed experiencing the rides, a fun way to start the new term.  They even bumped into ex QE student Adam Taylor who, in his red uniform, was operating the rides for a holiday job before he goes off to university in York.
