Students volunteering at Mumbles Duathlon

Valuable learning during Travel and Tourism field trips

It’s been a busy few weeks for our Travel and Tourism students.

Level 3 students recently visited Folly Farm to look at how visitor attractions can attract different types of tourists. They took photo evidence of the diversification methods used to attract new customers.

Students from the Level 3, year 1 course travelled to Bournemouth Airport to take part in Cabin Crew training at JARE Training Academy. They carried out practical activities including the emergency evacuation slide, safety demo and smoke filled cabin search and evacuation. This was an excellent day of training where students had a great insight into the career of a flight attendant.

Swansea Arena hosted the ‘Institute of Travel and Tourism Future You’ conference in conjunction with University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD), where the travel students listened to industry specialists talk about careers, experiences from current and past students, with a career fair included.

The Level 3, year 2 students ran their first event at the College training restaurant, The Vanilla Pod, which was extremely successful. 24 guests were treated to a ‘Six Nations Afternoon Tea’ designed by the tourism students based around a Six Nations theme. Hospitality and Catering students and staff assisted in making the delicacies to serve. The students aim was to build revenue for the venue and also raise the profile of the Vanilla Pod to external customers

And lastly two students, Megan Gear and Faith Lloyd, volunteered at the Mumbles Duathlon last weekend. They enjoyed the experience of learning about the operational side of running an event and greeting athletes at the end of the race!
