‘It’s a fantastic resource to have the Travel Counsellors team here at the College,’ says tutor Jane Miles. ‘Our students will gain so much from working alongside them and drawing on their in-depth industry knowledge. City College is committed to making our students work-ready and this partnership is a great example of how we set about achieving that.’

‘We’re very excited about the opportunity we’ve been given to work closely with City College,’ says Travel Counsellors’ Clare Davis. ‘We’re delighted to be supporting the students at City College and sharing our experience of the travel industry. We hope this will help them gain practical knowledge which they will be able to apply in their future career.’
