Vocational Visits to Woburn Safari Park

Woburn Safari Park offers a wide range of specialist vocational classes and programmes. Tours for vocational GCSE and A Level groups give a great insight into the day to day operation of the Safari Park. Students will learn about the products and services offered, as well as key business processes.



Customer service is one of the most important aspects of Woburn Safari Park and this excellence sets us aside from competitors. This session discusses why it is important, how we do it, internal and external customers, communications, dealing with complaints and evaluating customer service.


How do we get key messages about the Park to our target audience? This session looks at how and why we market the Park, the '4Ps' and market research.
