Students Spend Day At TIC

Sophie Hughes from St Mary's TIC

Students on a Tourism BTEC course from the Five Islands School have been experiencing what visitors want at first hand.

The four students have spent Tuesday and Wednesday working alongside staff in the Tourist Information Centre.

Sophie Hughes says the students found working in the TIC a real eye opener – they were surprised at the range of enquiries, from boat times to when the tennis courts open.

But Sophie says it wasn’t all one way – the students’ own islands knowledge and experience proved invaluable during the day.
