“I really enjoy learning about the customer service side of the tourism industry and how our actions can have a positive impact on someone’s holiday experience. As part of the course I had a work experience placement at Heathrow with British Airways which was brilliant! It’s a really rewarding industry and I eventually hope to work as cabin crew for a major airline.”
