Students on North Shropshire College’s (NSC’s) Travel and Tourism Level 3 BTEC course went to Shrewsbury Prison recently in order to find out more about the type of events that are held there. The trip included a guided tour of the prison, an insight into the events which were taking place and a talk with the owner of the Prison.
The students found out about a range of activities such as the lock-in events where groups of people have to solve puzzles in a set time frame in order to get out of the locked prison cell they are in and zombie walk events where live actors are involved in a scary tour of the prison. The students used this information to complete an assignment set by the course tutors.
Katie Williams, a second year Level 3 student commented, ‘It was a fantastic trip and wasn’t what we expected. We really enjoyed it and it was great that it counted towards an important part of our course’.
