“The Tourism and Event Management course was very interesting. I had never worked in this area before but the modules that the course offered gave me a lot of the skills that I needed, such as basic customer service and office skills to learning about heritage and tour guiding. I really did enjoy the course and couldn’t recommend it enough.”
