Students from West Suffolk College are helping to promote the image of Thetford as a great place to work.

Around 50 students are spending two weeks on work experience at companies in the town, which they will then represent at a student engagement event.

Students from five different departments at the Bury St Edmunds-based college are working with the Thetford Business Forum, in its tenth year, to promote companies in the town.

Media students from the college are also helping to produce a film to raise awareness of the dynamic companies operating in the town.

A special business and student engagement launch will be held at the college on Tuesday, March 13, when the Thetford Business Forum roadshow visits Bury. The event will include exhibitors as well as speakers.
