What our students say

I was attracted to CAVC because I felt like the college environment would be the right suit for me – as I wanted to study something that I loved. I felt like Cardiff and Vale College was able to offer me much more than just my course as I was part of the Netball Academy and a course rep.
My favourite thing about the Travel and Tourism course is how diverse it is – we were never just stuck in the classroom. During my course, we had the opportunity to spend two weeks in Palma doing a work placement, and learning in a practical environment.

Since finishing my course, I have now progressed to working for Swissport at Cardiff Airport.
