Studying at Peterborough College instilled in me the confidence and mindset essential for the travel and tourism sector. I especially cherished our practice sessions in the college’s mock-up cabin, simulating the real safety demonstrations. Our visit to a renowned airline base at London’s Heathrow Airport was particularly enlightening; it provided a genuine insight into the life of cabin crew.
