Learning on the Job

Last week Casey joined our team, here on her work placement! Here is her account of the week...

Last week we were lucky enough to welcome a new face into our midst in the form of a year 10 student on her work placement week.

Casey joined the team in our office and, on Wednesday, joined Adrian on a trip to London and the lofty heights of the 32nd floor over at Canary Wharf. The reason was to do some itinerary planning and meet some of our business partners at Experience Latin America. We have enjoyed having her here and it reminded us all of the good old days when the travel industry was a new and exciting prospect (although, it changes so much it still feels like that to most of us!). Fingers crossed Casey learnt a thing or two to take away with her.

So without further ado, here is Casey’s account of the week…

The School Travel Consultancy Blog

In this blog I will be telling you about my experience at the School Travel Consultancy and what I have done there. I have learnt how to compare group sized holidays to suit the needs of everyone involved, through researching travel companies such as Explore and Wendy Wu to find the perfect holiday.

I have also learnt about how the company promotes itself online and on social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. I have reviewed the website and started to write headings and sub headings for their site: finding the right school trip for you and yourteachers and unforgettable experiences and tours. And they upload educational blogs that are interesting to read, like this one!

All of these school trips are educational and link to subjects like religious studies or geography. They try there absolute hardest to give you the best, most unforgettable school trip where they challenge you; so that you do things you wouldn’t normally do and be the best you can be. You do challenging experiences such as camping in the Amazon and see breath taking views wherever you are from Morocco to India!

They also arrange girls’ school trips to lots of countries such as Thailand, Ghana, China and Jordan for young girls to experience how women in less fortunate countries live and what their roles are the culture is there.

It has been an experience to remember and I have met so many helpful and amazing people.
