Previous Experience: Thomas Cook Overseas Representative and Hospitality Manager
Having previously worked in the college’s apprenticeship department, I joined the travel and tourism team in 2019. I’m now on my way to completing my teaching qualification through the college’s Level 5 Learning and Skills Teacher Apprenticeship.
Before teaching, I worked abroad as a holiday representative for Thomas Cook. It was an experience I loved, and bringing my knowledge to the students is so rewarding; I love helping them find their inner rep and providing them with the best knowledge to help them with their studies.
I’m enjoying my role within the department – everyone is super-supportive and we have a range of travel experiences throughout the team. Our Level 3 Travel and Tourism students recently completed a Dragons’ Den style marketing campaign in which they had to present their ideas forward to Visit Leeds. It was so thrilling to be part of the experience, and the students were fantastic in their creative and professional approach.
