Deeside College students visit Mold court and Iceland HQ

ADMINISTRATION students have been taking lessons away from the classroom.

As part of a project to enhance their learning, the students had lessons in the courtrooms at Mold Crown Court and in the Iceland headquarters in Deeside.

The visits tied in with legal text processing and career planning modules they are studying and enabled them to make contact with local employers and speak to professionals employed within the industries.

During the visits, groups were taken on tours of the offices to view the facilities and real working environments.

They also had the opportunity to look at the different tasks preformed by administration personnel within each organisation including preparing documents before trials at the Crown Court along with human resources, logistics and sourcing operations at Iceland.

Deeside College administration tutor Rachel Von Borstel said: “The students benefit so much from being able to apply what they learn at college into real life situations.

“Making links with organisations such as Iceland and the courts is a vital extra for them to take away when they are looking at entering the work force.”

Student Jess Williams, 18, said: “It was really interesting to visit the Iceland office.

“It was great to understand how what we learn at college is used within a workplace.”
