Our Success Stories


Student name: Nicola Rowden

Former School: Barlby high School

Studied: Level 3 Extended Diploma in Travel & Tourism

Destination: Children’s Entertainer and Supervisor for TUI Magic Life for two years, before joining EasyJet as a member of Cabin Crew

Nicola Said “A major part of my college course was that it built my confidence, especially doing presentations, which is crucial to have when leading groups of 20-30 children and also as a member of Cabin Crew. I was promoted to Club Supervisor in my second year with TUI which gave me more responsibility and I also had to do Health & Safety checks.”

What other students have gone on to do…

Many of our students have progressed on to employment with companies such as British Airways, EasyJet, Tui, First Choice, Air Tours, Thomas Cook and Virgin Atlantic.

In the past, students have also enjoyed work experience with Leeds Marriott Hotel, Carlton Towers, Premier Inn, Jet2 and TUI.
