Travel & Tourism

If you want to be part of the one of the fastest growing industries in the world and join one of the 330 million people employed worldwide within the travel and tourism sector, then we can help you make your first step into a career in travel and tourism.

The travel and tourism industry is a dynamic, fast-paced, ever changing industry constantly adapting to fulfil the human desire to travel, explore and learn about places other than those we call home.

The travel and tourism industry encompasses everything from local visitor attractions and National Trust days out,  to festivals like Glastonbury and sporting events like The Olympics, to UK seaside destinations and National Parks, to package holiday in Spain and exotic adventure holidays in Costa Rica….and all the accommodation, transportation and ancillary services needed in between!

The scope of career paths within the industry are as wide and varied as the world in which the industry is based. As the industry evolves and develops with changing trends new jobs opportunities present themselves. The traditional roles of cabin crew, holiday representative and travel agent will always have a place in the industry, but along with those we are now seeing the development of new and exciting roles such as travel bloggers, travel influencers, brand ambassadors and destination development executives. All these coupled with limitless opportunities to work with the events, conference and exhibitions market, the cruise industry, tour operations and visitor attractions sector provides a promising future career.

We have outstanding success rates on this course and excellent feedback from our past students. In fact, some of our past students have gone on to become cabin crew, holiday reps, travel agents, airport staff and many more skilled jobs in the travel industry.

As part of your course you will have the chance to delve deep into the travel and tourism sector and gain a true understanding of all this exciting industry has to offer.

You’ll have the chance to visit UK attractions, meet with industry professionals, take part in a residential study visit and maybe even spend a few weeks on work experience in Europe as part of our Erasmus scheme.
