TESTIMONIALS

"I found the Travel & Tourism course very practical and relevant to the working world. As well as helping me realise that I wanted to work in the Travel Industry, the course also helped me find a training opportunity which led to a full-time job. I am currently working in a busy long haul department with a leading travel company which would not have been possible without completing this course".
