The Wandsworth education charity BEST manages work experience placements for 14-19 year old students. They work with employers and businesses to help teach young people the skills and knowledge they need for working life.

Throughout her time at SFX, Dora was consistently an exceptional student. She achieved D*D in her BTEC Diploma in Travel & Tourism this summer. The course includes a work experience placement within the Travel & Tourism sector. On completion of her two week placement at the Rafayel Hotel in Battersea, Dora was offered to stay working on a part-time basis. They were so impressed with her that they went on to offer her a full time job during the summer before she started University, and she still works there twice a week while she studies for her degree in Tourism Management with Spanish.

This is an amazing and well deserved achievement for Dora, who is well on the way to paving a successful career within the Travel & Tourism industry.
