Travel and Air Cabin Crew
Welcome by Head of Sport, Travel and Public Services
The travel industry is one of the most rewarding and exciting in the world, as people want to explore exotic places, take family holidays or plan getaways with partners and friends. It is of little surprise that the travel industry is growing so fast. If you want to be part of this vibrant industry, you will find a wide choice of careers.
We offer a range of travel courses at Coleg y Cymoedd, using excellent facilities. Our courses are very practical, and you will have the opportunity to develop a wide range of skills that will open a whole host of career options to you. Many of our learners have gone on to gain employment in airports and as Cabin Crew for well- known airlines such as British Airways, EasyJet and Ryanair as well as holiday reps for well-known companies.
Learners with jet-setting ambitions will have the opportunity to get first-hand cabin crew experience thanks to the mock cabin championed by the college for its realistic take on an actual aeroplane cabin. The replica travel cabin at our Ystrad Mynach campus provides high-flying learners on the Air Cabin Crew course with experience of working on a real-life aeroplane. The purpose-built mock aeroplane cabin supports the practical side of the course, challenging learners to deal with real-life situations that can arise at 35,000ft. Learners use role play to learn about the health, safety and security of passengers and how to respond correctly to emergency situations.
Our Level 3 Travel and Tourism course provides learners with an understanding of Tourism Management, Business Planning and Marketing along with the operations of holiday representatives and children’s reps. Those wishing to enter at Level 2 will learn the basics of tourism and the business of tourism to enable them to progress onto the Level 3 course or employment.
