Sir John Thynne

23rd March 2001 at 00:00
When Sir John Thynne built his beautiful house at Longleat in Queen Elizabeth I's reign, he could never have imagined it would be studied by 21st-century teenagers preparing for GNVQ qualifications in leisure and tourism and related subjects. Longleat: GNVQ teachers' resource pack is a dependably organised compendium of information that explains how the demands of safari park and stately home have to be balanced. Staff need training, marketing strategie have to be thought through, and future trends projected.

Students will learn how a beautiful building can be organised as a business operation and supporting talks and visits can also be arranged.

Longleat: GNVQ teachers' resource pack is free with an educational visit. Otherwise it costs pound;5+pamp;p. Contact Florence Wallace, education officer, Longleat, Warminster, Wiltshire BA12 7NW. Tel: 01985 845415. Website:
