St Charles Student Meets Richard Branson

Rizaldy BransonSt. Charles student, Rizaldy Bebida, recently completed work experience with Virgin Trains at Kings Cross where his duties included working on the gates and in the First Class lounge. Rizaldy studied Travel & Tourism at St Charles and has recently completed a Traineeship, which helped him to develop a better appreciation of the world of work.

Virgin Trains is a fast-moving company, in more ways than one, and Rizaldy was kept busy throughout his placement. He found the Virgin staff to be supportive and helpful in training him with station routines and he developed a good understanding of security and health and safety. The highlight of the placement was when Rizaldy was able to meet Richard Branson and thank him personally for this wonderful opportunity.
