Travel and Tourism students recently took a trip to the Maritime Skills Academy in Whitfield, near Dover, to gain a qualification in Personal Survival Techniques.
Students took part in a range of different training elements over the course of the day, in a specially designed training pool.
They learnt a number of invaluable personal sea survival skills, including how to use a lifejacket and immersion suit, jumping from a height into water, flipping an inverted life raft while wearing a life jacket and boarding a survival craft from the water while wearing a life jacket unassisted - all skills that will aid them in their career progression after completing their course.
Level 3 Travel and Tourism student, Emily Butler said: "The training was fun, really educational and a great team-building experience. I feel as though it has equipped me with the knowledge to be able to deal with a real-life situation and will be useful in years to come when exploring different career paths after College."
Our Travel and Tourism courses can take you in a range of different directions, from Air Cabin Crew to Event Management. The Travel and Tourism department also organises other related trips and visits, including to overseas destinations.
