Travel and Tourism department boosts students’ prospects with industry links

The Travel and Tourism department at Wakefield College is enhancing students’ learning with its industry partnerships – enabling them to learn from some of the leading organisations in the sector.

Zack Hamilton, an Emerging Talent and Careers Officer at Jet 2, recently delivered a talk to students at the College about Aviation Apprenticeships, as well as how their studies will link in with their future careers.

The department is also working closely with Visit Britain, Fly Me, Travel Counsellors, Willow Business Support and other local Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs), to create additional academic and enrichment opportunities for its students such as trips, guest speakers and work placements.
