Students get career insight on London visit; COVENTRY.

CITY College Coventry business students found themselves on a fact finding mission to London at two of the country's most prestigious companies.

Kam Kalirai, programme leader in business and trip organiser said: "This trip was organised partly to show how easy London was commutable and also to raise the aspirations of the learners by seeing for themselves the different types of attainable job roles that are available."

The students' first stop was the Canary Wharf Group where Dale Pile, education manager said: "The area of Canary Wharf has been developed from scratch over the last three decades and the Canary Wharf Group were instrumental in changing the area's image so it is now seen as the capital of finance in the UK and Europe."

Scott Anderson, from the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy Enterprise Course, said:"Dale was really helpful, what shone through in is talk was that no matter what your vision of the future may be, it's by sheer hard work and determination that these visions are achieved."

Next stop was Morgan Hunt Limited where TJ a senior recruitment consultant and recruitment manager Jack Marsden spoke to the students about their job roles and how hard work can pay off.

Kam said: "TJ and Jack were excellent, by the end of their talk many of the students wanted to be recruitment consultants. It was not all work, work, work for the students, they got to see some of the sights of London including Madison Cafe where the learners took in a breath taking view of London, even with the smog!"
