What our students say
Travel and Tourism Case Study

I had a work experience day with Virgin Atlantic where I did training to show us what it would be like on board an aircraft and I fell in love with the work then. Then whilst training on my course, we also had a look at what working for Swissport would be like. I then saw a job with TUI and my lecturer helped me with my application. I am now fully employed. Coming to Cardiff and Vale College helped me get my job.
