When Leah left school she knew she wanted to go to college, but she wasn’t sure exactly what she wanted to study. She thought Hair & Beauty may be a good option for her, but in the end she decided to enrol on a Travel and Tourism course.
Leah particularly enjoyed studying cruises and what these involve, and also learning how to conduct an emergency evacuation in water. This included visits to a local swimming pool where students had to simulate an aircraft evacuation in life vests.
As soon as she started the course Leah thought she would enjoy a career as a Cabin Crew member, but after completing work experience at Swissport her outlook has changed on the options available to her.
Leah knew A levels weren’t the right option for her as she thrived in a more practical environment, so she thought a course in Hair and Beauty was the most obvious alternative. It wasn’t until she heard a few friends discussing the option of Travel and Tourism that she became interested and decided to give it a try.
