If you would love to travel to worldwide destinations as cabin crew this City & Guilds Air Cabin Crew Diploma is a perfect way to learn more about the aviation industry.

This is a dynamic sector and the variety of skills learnt on the course could also springboard you into other careers within the leisure and tourism industry, as well as giving you the option to progress to the Travel and Tourism Level 2 and 3 courses here at City College Plymouth.
