Ship shaped day for HoW College’s Travel and Tourism students


Heart of Worcestershire College’s Travel and Tourism students got their dose of vitamin sea this week as they took a trip aboard the P&O Cruise Ship, Ventura.

It was all hands on deck as the students travelled down to Southampton for a luxury day abroad the cruise ship; including a tour and lunch.

The day left the students in “oar” of the different career prospects and job opportunities available to them once they finish their course.

Speaking about the trip, Paul Knapper, Spires Travel Manager, said:

“It’s great that we are able to arrange Cruise Ship Visits with large companies such as P&O Cruises. It gave the students first-hand knowledge of what a cruise ship experience is like and also helped them with career choices for the future.

Level 3 Travel & Tourism, Jasmine Stanley, added:

“I thought the trip was very enjoyable and interesting from start to finish. The trip has inspired me to possibly work on a cruise ship one day and definitely go on a cruise ship holiday myself. Also the trip has made me aware of all of the variety of different job opportunities and positions available in the travel and tourism industry.”

HoW College is committed to embedding work experience in to every learners journey. For more information about studying Travel and Tourism please visit our website:
