Industry opportunities

You will benefit from the excellent links we have with local employers who regularly come in as guest speakers and assessors, or to deliver full sessions. For example, staff from Swissport have previously come into College to interview students on our Level 3 course and Thomas Cook attended our recruitment and selection event where they interviewed students wanting to become children’s representatives at their overseas resorts.

Other companies we’ve worked with include Ryanair, easyJet, Flitwick Manor, TUI, Menzies, The Embankment Hotel, Henlow Grange, Thameslink and Harrods Aviation. All of this helps you to develop the skills that will make you more employable and successful when applying for jobs.
