Earlier today, we delivered pre-departure training for Travel & Tourism students from Bath College and South Gloucestershire & Stroud (SGS) College. It was great to see the energy and enthusiasm amongst the group as they prepare for their placements in Seville, which start next week.

“I’m looking forward to learning about some of the culture and how the Spanish do things differently to us.”
