Travel and Tourism

Travel and tourism students can look forward to a range of opportunities including opportunities to visit tourist destinations in the UK and overseas (past trips have included Barcelona, Paris and New York), planning and hosting events within the college, including fundraising events. There will also be training opportunities – last year our students visited the British Airways’ Global Training Academy.

Courses available at the college range from Level 1 to Level 3. Progression opportunities include further study, apprenticeships and employment.
