During the visit the students engaged in a variety of talks with various departmental leads at the Co-op on topics ranging from the history of the Lincolnshire Co-operative, to the role of the People and Performance department, the Marketing department and IT.

The visit was a great opportunity for learners to gain insight into the operations of an organisation with both a long history of success and a strong local and community focus.

Leading the trip Becky Goodman, Module Leader on the BA Business course, explained the benefits of gaining these behind-the-scenes insights:

“Site visits such as this are instrumental in aiding the learning and development of our students. It is key that their learning experiences extend beyond the classroom, and we are thankful to the Lincolnshire Co-op for providing our learners with such a fantastic opportunity”

If you’re interested in a future in international business or in starting your own company, our business courses are the perfect path to take. You can find more information on them on our website or by contacting our Enquiries Team.
