Thanks to the help and support of my teachers, I’ve already been offered apprenticeship training to be a travel consultant with Hays Travel, which I’m definitely going to take. I learned about the apprenticeship opportunity from my teacher, Michelle, who has always believed in me and encouraged me to do my best and succeed. I’ll always remember my time at Brock fondly – especially now I have achieved what I wanted.Travel and Tourism Level 2 Certificate
