Bangor Marina boosts employability skills

Travel & Tourism student Courtney Hanna from Bangor Academy & Sixth Form College has been paired with Bangor Marina for her Partner in Business and for work experience.
The purpose of the 'Partner in Business' concept is to build employability skills and to provide students with the opportunity to get a taste of the world of work. In Courtney's case she has been able to work closely with marina management and staff, tourists and boat owners. Her work experience has been such a success that she will be undertaking paid work at Bangor Marina upon completion of her studies in June this year.
Bangor Marina Manager Kevin Baird said 'From day one we could see that Courtney would fit right in with our team. She is motivated , self-assured and has a passion for delivering exceptional standards of customer care. We have received many compliments and words of praise for Courtney from both our resident berth holders and visiting boat owners and we are delighted that she will be joining our team again this summer.'
