From education to employment

Buongiorno! Travel students team up with Italian students for tourism morning

Travel students team up with Italian students for tourism morning

Travel & Tourism students from East Sussex College Hastings welcomed a group of Italian students into the college earlier this week.

The Italian students are currently studying English in Hastings with English for Less and had arranged to visit the college to find out more about education in the UK, learn more about the historic town of Hastings and improve their English.

The visit was the perfect opportunity for the Level 3 Travel & Tourism students to put their learning into practise as they greeted the students, gave them guided tours of the facilities, and then presented some interesting facts about some of the UK’s top tourism destinations, including Hastings.

The Italian students, who are from the Amalfi Coast, then switched roles and spent some time to tell the Hastings students about the southern edge of Italy’s Sorrentine Peninsula, Pompei and nearby Naples.

Hayley Watkinson, Travel & Tourism lecturer at East Sussex College Hastings, said: “We loved having the Italian students visit us. We were able to show them around the college, visiting the fuselage, travel classrooms, the gym and the Plaza hair and beauty salons.

“The guided tours and presentations about some of the top staycation spots in the UK really helped our students put their learning into practise and build their confidence – and they’ve also improved their knowledge about the stunning Amalfi Coast.

It was a great day and the students did a fantastic job as ambassadors for the college.”
