Business students’ media experience

26th Jun, 2012 | Sixth Form News

National Diploma Business students at Nelson and Colne College Sixth Form have visited Manchester for a tour of Media City, the Imperial War Museum and Old Trafford.

Students studying on the College’s National Diploma in Business get a detailed introduction to the study of business. From accounts and finance, to human resources and marketing, the students learn a range of skills which transfer to the world of work and are equally favoured by universities.

On their most recent educational trip, the Business students were able to visit Media City, Old Trafford and the Imperial War Museum. With the BBC’s recent relocation to Manchester, Media City is now a hub for international creative and digital business, including the BBC and ITV and offers a bespoke community featuring office, retail and leisure space and one of the largest HD studio developments in Europe! During their tour at Media City the students visited music studios, including the BBC Philharmonic studio and the BBC News studio! They also met with BBC Presenters Mark Radcliffe and Stuart Marconie.

At Old Trafford, the students had a tour of the museum and attended a presentation with Laura Flint, the curriculum manager for MUFC on business activities and finance. Afterwards, they enjoyed a stadium tour including the home team changing rooms, tunnel and dugouts!

The trip gave the students a chance to put what they have been taught in lessons into context, enriching their understanding of business. As an unexpected bonus, the group also met Peter Jones from “Dragons Den”, who kindly posed for photos with the group.

Business tutor Keren Morley accompanied the group and said, “It was a fantastic day all round and the students enjoyed both the visit to the Media City and Old Trafford. Visits such as these really help the students’ studies and also act as a great team-building session which has a positive impact back in the classroom.”
