"The College has prepared me for the future by helping to organise my work experience opportunities."

Maisie studied Blackburn College’s Level 3 Extended Diploma in Travel and Tourism and achieved Distinction Star, Distinction Star, Distinction (D*, D*, D). Congratulations and good luck, Maisie!

Maisie said: “I knew I wanted to go to College after leaving school but I was initially unsure of which College to actually go to. After seeing Blackburn College and what the Travel and Tourism course had to offer, it was an easy decision to choose to study here.

“What I have enjoyed the most about Blackburn College, alongside the course, was meeting new people and making new friends.

“The College has prepared me for the future by helping to organise my work experience opportunities. I did two lots of work placements which helped me understand more about the Travel and Tourism industry and guided me towards what type of job I would like in the future.”

She added: “My tutors supported me to achieve my goals by advising me and guiding me towards achieving my predicted grades, which I am happy with.

“I am currently working after leaving Blackburn College, but I am aspiring to go to University in the future to study a Travel and Tourism-related Degree with a view to a career within the industry.”
