Scores of Newham College students have been gaining work experience in Paris and Seville.

The group of students, who attend the college, in High Street South, East Ham, have been at work placements learning about business, travel and tourism for the last two weeks, as part of their Euro Train Project, which is funded by the EU’s Erasmus programme.

The project has helped more than 140 students travel abroad, since it started in October 2015, as well as develop skills and enhance their CV’s.

The college’s transnational project manager said: “It’s fantastic working on this project - It offers Newham College students something that not many colleges do and the benefits of the work placements are great to see – it helps build student confidence, gives them practical know-how and a chance to experience something new.”

The college has another three trips to Seville planned for this academic year.
