“I knew at school I wanted to be in the travel industry but I wasn’t sure what job would be right for me. I found out about the College through a friend who had already applied so I came to one of the Open Evenings and was impressed by the staff and the aircraft cabin so decided to apply. “I started on the Level 2 and progressed to the Level 3 Extended Diploma. I found the course to be perfect for my needs. The tutors really get us ready for employment and part of this is wearing uniforms while we are in College. We also take part in relevant trips and activities such as visiting airline training centres and taking part in a Dubai fly-cruise, these all help to give you an insight into what it is like to work in the industry. “The staff also helped by sharing their contacts in the industry and as a result I was offered the first job I applied for with Thomas Cook. I will now start work over the summer as a Service Representative in Turkey, Greece or Spain. “I’m really pleased I came to College as it has helped me progress to a much higher level than I expected when I left school and I am now on course to achieve triple D* grades and start the career I’ve always wanted.”
