Travel & Tourism

 

Travel & Tourism

Thriving, fast-paced and sociable, careers in travel and tourism are highly sought after - and with good reason. Nothing beats the luxury of a foreign holiday, the glamour of a ‘staycation,’ or the excitement of a day trip.

You could be working as cabin crew for a major airline, helping the public in a tourist office, manning the front desk in a five-star hotel, booking holiday packages in a travel agent or simply making sure customers have an experience to remember. If you’re organised, thrive in a team and enjoy meeting people, travel and tourism could be the career choice for you.

Why study travel and tourism with us?
Travel and tourism is about getting out there, seeing different places and meeting new people, so your course will have a real focus on practical activities and trips to visit local destinations and organisations.

You'll gain a broad overview of the travel and tourism industry, covering a diverse range of subjects such as customer service, worldwide travel destinations, visitor attractions and cabin crew. Our tutors are all seasoned professionals – some still work in the industry – with solid links to employers, including airlines and tour operators.

There’s the enormous benefit of being located close to one of the UK’s top attractions in Windsor Castle, one of the world’s favourite capital cities, and just down the road from one of the UK’s busiest airports. It’s the ideal opportunity for you to learn and develop your skills as you progress through your course. We also work in partnership with leading businesses to provide you with the chance to learn from some of the best in the industry.

 
 

Your lessons will be packed with knowledge and insights from the front line of travel and tourism, and you’ll be encouraged and supported to organise a work placement with a local business. You could gain valuable experience at a top airline, a major international travel organisation or one of the UK’s most famous tourist destinations.

Where could it take you?
With a qualification in travel and tourism, you could work for a travel agent, an airline or at a tourist hotspot. Typical job roles include airline customer services agent, holiday representative, flight attendant, check-in agent, reservations consultant, hotel management or tour operator.

Alternatively, it’s the ideal foundation for furthering your travel and tourism education at a higher level at university. Wherever your ambitions lie, a qualification in travel and tourism could be your first-class ticket to a rewarding and exciting career.
