Sarah Rigby Resized

“The second I heard that I would do a whole module based on becoming cabin crew, and that there is an onsite simulation aircraft to learn in, I knew this was the course for me! I’ve had so many great experiences, from visiting airports like Manchester and Liverpool John Lennon, to going to New York which is something I’ve always dreamed of doing.”

It was at one of the college’s exciting open evenings that former Golborne High School pupil Sarah decided to put her dreams of exploring the world into action by applying for Level 3 Travel & Tourism. Sarah has always wanted to become cabin crew, seeing the world’s top destinations while working for a prestigious airline, and she feels that she could not have found a course better suited to these goals.
