Travel and Tourism

Travel and Tourism at Oldham College is an inspiring exposure to the dynamic aviation and airline industry.

Our courses equip students with the skills they need to pursue a career in this ever-expanding sector. We teach Airport Operations, Cabin Crew Training and Travel Services.

We take a wide-ranging view of the Travel industry and ensure our students are as adept at delivering excellent customer service as they are knowledgeable about geography, European destinations, the UK travel industry and sustainable tourism.

Oldham College has both excellent facilities and a sector-experienced staff-base. Contextualise this in the Greater Manchester strategy for the visitor economy and it is clear to see that our students have great career prospects. The growth of Manchester Airport provides great opportunities for our students to make their mark on the local economy.
