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".

"All the subjects on the course [Event Management] were relevant and they helped me when I went into the degree course because I had already studied parts of them. I feel like all the subjects I did now stand to me and I learned a lot in the year."
