Warm Praise for Hazardous Placement

Congratulations to final-year visual communication students Dean Burgan (Graphic Communication) and Gemma Oldfield (Design for Multimedia) pictured here with James 'Jim' Marriott from the West Midlands Fire Service Academy, who have been working together to produce interactive electronic-learning materials to assist the training of Fire Service employees in simulations for handling radiation and hazardous materials. The students said of the project: "What a great experience working with a well established local service. Who would have thought a live brief could be so much fun and we would get to work with a great bunch of guys."

In response, Jim said: “I have had the pleasure of working with Gemma and Dean on numerous occasions and have only ever been impressed with their work ethic and interest. They have not only met for appointments at the university but also come to Fire service premises where they have acted in a professional manner absorbing information on an obviously difficult subject with relative ease. Working with these enthusiastic and committed students from Visual Communications has been a pleasure. They are a credit to themselves, the University, and any prospective employer.”

The Visual Communication staff team would like to thank Jim and his team for providing this excellent opportunity, and look forward to a proposed continuation of this interesting work.
