To support your studies, and expand your knowledge and experience of the industry, you will participate in a number of educational study trips such as visits to overseas destinations (e.g. Paris, New York, Dubai), as well as UK destinations, theme parks and trade shows. These trips are optional but greatly encouraged and students should be prepared for a financial outlay in respect of this.
Regular extra-curricular hosting duties at College events such as open evenings and Graduation ceremonies will enhance your presentation and customer-facing skills.
You will also study the skills required to Prepare for Employment and may undertake a Work Placement to give you valuable experience in the industry, a good reference – and boost your CV and interview prospects.
You will improve your chances of gaining employment in the travel and tourism industry such as travel agencies, tour operators, visitor attractions, overseas work such as resort representatives whilst improving your communication and vocational skills.
To prepare you for a career in Travel and Tourism, we set high standards in personal appearance and behaviour for our students: you will be expected to adhere to a strict dress code both in class and around College, be ready and prepared for lessons and conduct yourself in a professional manner.
