Vocational Business students at Nelson and Colne College Sixth Form have enjoyed a trip to the country’s capital city as part of their course.

Nelson and Colne College Sixth Form has an outstanding Business department, which each year sees students progress to some of the best business related degree courses in the UK. This continued success is attributed partly to the department’s ethos of giving its students a ‘real life’ view on business. Throughout the year, students visit a number of local businesses and welcome guest speakers who share their expertise in the business world.

The trip to London allowed the Business students to visit the Supreme Court, adding another dimension to their Law unit. It allowed the students to the formal set up of the court rooms and see firsthand the workings of the theory they were learning in class.

In addition, the students toured the capital’s famous ‘sights’. Including the Imperial War Museum, the London Eye, Buckingham Palace, St. James’ Park, Downing Street, Whitehall and a trip to see the Blood Brothers at the West End. However, one of the surprise highlights of the trip was meeting Margaret Mountford from the hit BBC show The Apprentice! The students saw her in the British Museum where she was kind enough to speak with the students for a couple of minutes and pose for photos!
