College Business Insight for Visiting Swedish Students
The College has welcomed three Swedish students to learn about Business Administration as part of the ongoing working relationship between the College and Bromangymnasiet, a 16-19 Sixth Form further education establishment in Hudiksvall, Sweden.
Students Mikaela Arousell, Andre Olsson Hammar and Joel Segervald will be spending their three week secondment at the College working alongside various administrative roles to gain a deeper understanding of the workings of an English secondary education environment.
The College has enjoyed links with Bromangymnasiet for over ten years, regularly sending teachers to share expertise, best practice and staff development opportunities as well as offering students the chance to experience English culture and educative environments.
The visit has been eye-opening, as Mikaela explains: “Schools in England are more structured than in Sweden and Newton Abbot College students have a great respect for their teachers. It has been very interesting learning about how a school is run. We have felt very welcome and we will be taking some ideas with us back to Sweden.”
Newton Abbot College’s Business Manager, Nick Hill, has been pleased with the visit so far: “We are really happy to welcome our Swedish visitors. Newton Abbot College is excited to be able to build strong relationships with Bromangymnasiet and we hope that they enjoy their time in our community and learn valuable insights into how business administration within an education environment is operated.”
