Seevic students take a bite of The Big Apple
Friday, 31 March 2017
Business students at Seevic College were given once in a lifetime opportunity to visit New York as part of their course, getting the chance to see all the sights of the city whilst learning invaluable life skills.
A massive 30 students were accompanied by staff on the trip, where they visited sites such as Wall Street, Federal Reserve Bank of New York, Times Square and the Empire State Building.
Business tutor Debbie Baisden said: “The students really benefited from the trip. Strong friendships that would not normally materialise were formed, which will help with teamwork in the classroom.
“With Finance playing a huge part in the students’ course, they were also able to identify different markets, rates and currencies.”
Level 3 BTEC Business student Kevin Ceraj, 18, said: “As part of the Business course at Seevic, we focus on how businesses work. This trip has enabled us to see how businesses function in other countries.
“It was really interesting to experience the customer service in America. I think they are a lot more consumer-focused; this insight will help to influence my work at college.”
Debbie added: “It was great enrichment for the students as well as being an excellent opportunity for the students to be exposed to new cultures.”
