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.
