The course gives you a great foundation for moving into work in the tourism industry across many different sectors. I gained employment in the Airline Industry after leaving and am now working in hotels. I’d highly recommend this course to anyone looking to work in the tourism sector and I’m very grateful for the start it gave me in my career.”
