    Travel and Tourism

    The teachers at Martin gave us personalised attention, and we learnt everything in a practical way, making it easier to learn what the workforce is about. After Martin I started in Accor's Central Reservation Services (ARS) and later I applied for the GMT program for Accor hotels. I successfully graduated from the program and now I'm currently working for the Mercure Sydney Airport as a Restaurant Supervisor.

    Travel and Tourism

    I turned to Martin in 2014 after applying for a role at Flight Centre Travel Group, and not being accepted. I was determined to work for this company but after finding out only 2% of people that apply get in, I realised that I needed help. I decided to enrol myself into the Travel & Tourism course at Martin and I am so grateful that I did!

    The course, my friendly peers and the wonderful teachers, taught me so much. They also set realistic expectations for what life would be like working in the Travel & Tourism industry. I could not have possibly been so successful in my role as an international travel consultant without the support and education that I received from Martin.
