King’s Lynn students could be heading for London Olympics
College of West Anglia students interviewed for steward jobs at games
Students at a King's Lynn college are waiting to hear if they will be employed for London 2012.
Around 60 of them were interviewed by G4S at the College of West Anglia and some of them could be employed by the company for stewarding at the London games later this year.
'This is a fantastic opportunity for young people to be involved in this once in a lifetime event. It's a legacy and beyond. The qualifications they have gained will allow them to go on and work at other large events after London 2012. All in all a fantastic experience for them,' said course director Neil Reader.
The group of students have been studying for two qualifications as part of the Bridging the Gap programme.
