TESTIMONY from a learner

“I completed the Learning for Life: Hospitality and Tourism Course in December 2020 and I would highly recommend the course. The tutors are excellent and most approachable and the course syllabus is well structured with some inspiring guest speakers also contributing. Having not come from the industry, the course has armed me with skills and tools that I plan to put into use in 2021 when the hospitality and tourism industry comes back in force.”
