Work placements: Holiday Inn

Travel and Toursim student Lauren Blaney is one of the many young people at South Essex College combining a work placement with their studies.

Placements are an excellent way to teach students about the real working world, allowing them to experience the careers their courses will lead them to. They can also provide local businesses with hard working students who are keen to learn.

Lauren, 18, completed a two week work placement at the Holiday Inn, Southend Airport. Lauren worked in different hotel departments and catered for a variety of guests.
