CULTURAL and adventure travel specialist Tourdust has been shortlisted for an award for the quality of its student work experience.

Tourdust, of Akeman Street, Tring, is up for a National Council for Work Experience (NCWE) Award 2011.

The NCWE Awards recognise businesses from all sectors and sizes that provide exceptional student internships across nine categories.

Anna Colclough, director at Tourdust said: “When a student joins we hope that they will add value to us as a company and in return we will support them to grow and eventually find a job. This is what makes our placements exceptional – ours and the student’s needs are very well balanced and we all stand to gain something from the relationship.”

The winners will be announced on Tuesday March 22 at the Merchant Taylors’ Hall in London by The Apprentice finalist, Ruth Badger.
