Saturday, 10 November 2012 17:29(JollofNews) – A UK college has won an international award for a joint project carried out with a Gambian college.
South Nottingham College won the best engagement with people and cultures category in the Virgin Holidays Responsible Tourism Award at the World Travel Market in London.
The judges were impressed by the strength of the partnership between South Nottingham College and the Institute of Travel and Tourism of The Gambia.
The work involved the setting up and running of a vocational tourism education institute in Gambia which has been in existence since 2008. 269 students have graduated from it, while 106 more are set to finish their courses this year.
"It's a project that has changed lives both in the Gambia and in Nottingham and has created a legacy that will continue to benefit Gambian people for years to come," Adam Beazeley, head of South Nottingham College`s school for sport and tourism, was quoted saying.
