At CONEL, our travel and tourism courses have paved the way for many previous students to gain employment in this growing field. Opportunities for work in this industry, in the UK and particularly in London, have increased dramatically over the last few years with huge numbers of tourists visiting all year round. Working in the sector is vibrant, exciting and constantly changing, giving you the opportunity to meet new people and travel across the world.

There are a number of different areas of work you may decide to go into within the sector including customer service, marketing and sales roles. You could also choose to move into product development or IT and administration for the leisure industry. Whatever career you choose, CONEL is ideally placed, with great facilities to develop your skills and give you experience through work placements, trips abroad and events management at venues across the city. In the past, our students have visited the World Travel Market, King’s Cross and St Pancras stations, the Emirates Cable Car and Lee Valley Country Park, with some also getting the opportunity to travel abroad.

Many of our alumni now work at companies as diverse as Marriott Hotels and the Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA).
