Charlotte and Jess secure work placement at local travel magazine

A local publishing company who specialise in the travel trade are supporting Shrewsbury Colleges Group by placing students from the Level Three Diploma in Travel & Tourism on work experience. Blueprint Travel Media, whose clients range from English Heritage and The National Trust for Scotland to West End theatre shows, stately homes and all types of visitor attractions, produce their own bespoke publications covering the UK and Europe, guides for The Tourism Society, Heritage Railway Association and AGTO as well as gourmet food guides and Original Shrewsbury’s town map and town guide.

Nick Bevan, Managing Director of Blueprint Travel Media said,  “It is a great opportunity for both parties. We have had an amazing year, growing rapidly, and it is fantastic to be able to help the college with the student's education experience. We work in a vibrant industry and the students we’ve met so far have a genuine enthusiasm for UK tourism. It is often a forgotten industry but it is the backbone of many livelihoods in communities – our town is no different with over £500 million being added to the local economy through tourism related activities.”

Jackie Swan, Curriculum Leader for Hospitality & Catering said, “It’s absolutely brilliant that two of our students have been offered placements with Blueprint Travel Media where they will get the opportunity to be involved with real projects in the tourism publishing industry. They went through a selection process and were given valuable feedback on both their CVs and their interview skills that will be invaluable when applying for future jobs. Last year the college organised 883 placements for students, which offer them invaluable experience that not only helps them decide what areas they would like to work in the future but also gives them a real insight into what working in industry is like. It opens up further experiences and Charlotte Taylor-Jones and Jessica Davenport-Sheridan will have a real advantage to help them move up that career ladder following their studies.”
