Zach began with a Level 2 in Travel and Tourism and progressed to the Level 3 Diploma. When he finished he was selected by Thomas Cook to be a member of their cabin crew.

"My course helped me in more ways than I could have imagined. It got me a fantastic job and opened so many doors for me. I wouldn't be where I am today without the amazing staff at Halesowen College."

Louis Hannis

Having completed my BTEC Level Three Diploma in Travel & Tourism I was very lucky to get a job with Eurocamp as a holiday courier.

During my time at Halesowen College all of the lecturers went above and beyond to make sure I was gaining the most experience. I was head Travel Representative within the Travel and Tourism Department and I was nominated for a Dudley Youth Award for ˜Contribution to College Life™.
