    So it has today been released that the UK's number 1 family theme park is pairing up with Staffordshire University to offer a foundation degree in Visitor Attraction and Resort Management for 2 years, including 18 weeks paid work experience including all aspects from retail, to operating rides to working in the hotel.

    What do you think?!


    Think it's too good to be true but if it is then 18 weeks paid work experience? Go for it!

    Just wanted to give everyone some info about this course.

    The course is 2 years full time, and includes 18 weeks of paid work experience at Alton Towers. You'll be able to get paid practical work experience as well as being able to develop important skills at uni. If you're interested in a career in the leisure industry this will be really good for you. During your first year you'll be working in front-line roles at Alton Towers, and the intention is that you'll be able to work at team leader level in year two.

    The course will give you a solid understanding of core areas including:
    • Visitor attraction
    • Commercial and hotel operations management
    • Marketing and digital communications
    • Financial and human resources management
    • High quality customer service
    You can find out more about the course on our site here.

    If anyone's got any questions about Staffs feel free to get in touch with me and I'll be able to help you out
Have you ever experienced racism/sexism at uni?
