Dr Rob Hussey, Vice Principal (Curriculum) at Collyer’s said: “Huge thanks to Karen England and all at Elekta in Crawley for creating this wonderful educational opportunity for our students.”

Karen England added: “To top it all the learners also took part in some practical exercises and got to work on those important employability skills, working in teams and demonstrating their presentation techniques during an exercise in the broadcast television studio.”
