“Hospitality is a non-stop learning environment where you learn something new every day. When I started college, I didn’t know what to expect but It was a great, positive learning environment. Lecturers encouraged me to take on work experience throughout my course which helped me progress my practical skills in a number of different hospitality settings.”
