I originally studied Tourism Management here at UCB. After achieving my BSc degree in 2006 I worked in the Events sector within a hotel. On gaining my PGCE I began working within another Further Education college setting up a Travel and Tourism department, finally joining University College Birmingham in 2014. My key responsibilities are centred on my role as Year Manager for the BTEC Level 3 programme year one students and module leader for Customer Service in Travel and Tourism and Preparing for Employment in Travel and Tourism.
