Travel & Tourism students jet off to sunny Spain

Level 3 Travel & Tourism students swapped Salisbury for the Spanish isles to explore the capital of the Balearic Islands, Palma de Mallorca.

Throughout the course, the students have been studying a range of European and long haul travel destinations, visitor attractions and the airline and cruise industries, where they complete an award for Resort Representative and a Certificate in Cabin Crew with many progressing on to employment in these areas.

Seventeen-year-old student Bethan Ward from Amesbury said on behalf of the Level 3 group: “The trip has been a great opportunity to put a lot of what we learn in the classroom into practice and see the different things we have to write about in assignments.

“It was good to experience how a smaller airport, like Bournemouth, operates and compare it directly to the airport in Palma.”

On check in at Vistasol hotel near the beach resort of Magaluf, the students completed a health and safety risk assessment for their NCFE qualification.

The three day trip involved sightseeing, visits to local attractions, marina and seaports, dinner at the Hard Rock Café as well as visiting a range of hotels including Lively, Sol Beach House and Aqua Sol in the Palma Nova resort.

Bethan said: “The best experience was jumping on the hop-on-hop-off bus and exploring the city of Palma.

“We visited the cathedral, other historical areas and the cities architecture and saw some of the most stunning views.”
