Students can combine practical and theoretical knowledge, mixing creativity, stellar service, and a wider vision to prosper in their professions.
Air cabin simulator, world-class kitchens, and showcase opportunities in the student shop and a flourishing commercial restaurant.
A discounted Disneyland trip is available for our Level 3 travel and tourism students from the store.
