The College welcomed third year Business & Management University of Exeter student, Vinayak Kaul, to run mentoring and support sessions to Year 12 A Level Business students.
Covering key topics such as business finance, international trade and the impact of exchange rate fluctuations, students got the opportunity to learn essential business practice that will be part of their A Level coursework and examinations. Following completion of the mentoring sessions, students will have the opportunity to visit the University of Exeter Business School, shadowing undergraduates on Economics, Business Management and Finance and Accounting degree courses to gain invaluable insight into university life and experience undergraduate lecture sessions.
Vinayak said: “I’m very fortunate and grateful to have had the opportunity to mentor a class of A Level Business students at Newton Abbot College. This outstanding group of students has been engaged and participative in each session; their Business Studies Department were very helpful in coordinating the programme.”
