My Experience

Tia, Level 2 Diploma and Level 3 Extended Diploma in Travel and Tourism

“I wanted to study Travel and Tourism at EKC Dover College as I when I looked around the College I knew it had the support to help me to achieve my dream of working in travel. I loved every moment of my three years at the College and learning all about the travel industry. My favourite part was definitely being able to do the sea survival skills training!

Since finishing my course, I have started working as a cabin crew member at British Airways. I wouldn’t have been able to achieve my dream job of flying all over the world and seeing lots of beautiful countries without the support the College has in place for everyone to achieve their career goals.”
