You will enjoy masterclasses to develop your resort and tour guide skills and will be assessed through simulations and on work placement.

Successful completion of the course will place you in a strong position to gain employment as cabin crew or in other travel industry jobs; many of our past students are now working as cabin crew for a variety of airlines.

You have the opportunity to progress on to Travel and Tourism Level 3, to study a range of units to aid you to progress into a vast variety of jobs in the sector, whether in the UK or overseas.

Many of our students are now enjoying successful careers with UK and International airlines flying to various destinations around the world and others have used the qualification to gain work in other sectors of the travel industry.

"I have worked for the independent agency, Co-operative Travel, for over 21 years now and have been privileged during that time to have arranged student trips for the East Coast College Travel and Tourism students, mostly recently a visit to Zante. In addition, I have also enjoyed taking time to talk to the Travel and Tourism students at the college about being a travel agent and all that entails, along with talking about the ‘Co-operative Difference’ principles which set us apart from our competitors on the high street. It’s an honour for myself, as a representative for the Co-operative society, to be involved with the college and working together with them supporting students to understand the travel and tourism industry."
