Barnstaple visitors find out what it would be like to work in the French Alps.
PETROC students have enjoyed a dream work experience trip in the French Alps working at a ski resort.
The outdoor adventure and public services students learnt visited Morzine to learn what it would be like to live and work in a ski resort, working with instructors from English ski school Altitude.
They also learnt skills such as ice climbing and winter mountaineering with mountain guide Adrian Nelhams.
The was part of the Leonardo Da Vinci Programme, co-funded by the EU to support work placements for graduates and school leavers.
“It was a fantastic opportunity for the students to experience life working in a ski resort and one which we hope to continue each year as part of the Outdoor Adventure Course,” said programme leader Mike Bazley.
“Experience like this is invaluable and will give the students a huge advantage when it comes to finding employment in the future.”
