Travel and Tourism

If you are looking to launch your career in the Travel and Tourism industry, then look no further than our courses at South Devon College. Based in the English Riviera, Torbay's strong tourism industry make it the perfect place to study for a dynamic career that could take you anywhere in the world.

Our teaching staff all possess industry recognised qualifications and vocational experience, adding a practical element to your learning. This is emphasised by our links to local, national and international travel and tourism organisations, which could see you embark on survival training with Virgin Atlantic or helping plan and host conferences for the English Riviera Tourism Company.

The skills that you develop during your studies are all sought after by businesses in a range of sectors. A Travel and Tourism qualification from South Devon College can open up employment opportunities that you may not have even considered. To help you find employment we develop employability skills through sessions that include mock interviews to help you prepare. You will also develop the practical skills employers seek, participating in annual overseas trips, be it Paris or Marrakech, which can take your learning to another level.


If you would like a career in cabin crew then this qualification will help develop your knowledge and understanding of: the role of cabin crew, airline health, safety and security, selling products and services and making passenger announcements.
You will be supported by a teacher who will use their cabin crew experience to help you learn and you will be assessed by written work, presentations and role plays.

We have a wide variety of financial support available for adults to fund your studies, as well as a dedicated finance team to help make studying with us affordable.

If you are aged 19 or over, and studying a Level 3, 4, 5 or 6 course, you could apply for an Advanced Learner Loan. The Advanced Learner Loan is a government-funded loan to help learners. It's easy to apply for, doesn't take your household income into account and doesn't involve a credit check.

We can also support you with a Learner Support Fund, which can assist with costs including childcare, college meals, exam fees and course materials. The amount of funding you can receive depends on your personal circumstances, and you could be entitled to free tuition if you're studying a Level 2 course. In the event that you do have to pay a course fee, this can be managed in an affordable way through our direct debit scheme, with monthly payments starting at just £25.

Find out more about the funding you could receive, here.

Are you an adult looking for an Apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships are a great way of gaining important skills and qualifications with work-based training. You'll also receive a wage whilst you study, which makes apprenticeship training a fantastic option for adults preparing for employment.

You can start an apprenticeship even if you are already employed, or the College can help you secure an employer in a relevant field. They develop real work experience, and you gain both technical and academic skills with 4 days per week spent in the workplace and the remaining day in College.

Progress onto university with South Devon College

We also have an extensive degree programme, delivered in partnership with Plymouth University, so when you complete your studies you could progress to a related university degree that will develop the knowledge you need to excel.

If you don't feel quite ready for university study, our Access to Higher Education Diplomas can help you prepare, so there's nothing to stop you from achieving your goals. We have courses in a number of subject areas, as well as support with interview techniques and UCAS applications to other institutions.
