Throughout her time at SFX, Dora was consistently an exceptional student. She achieved D*D in her BTEC Diploma in Travel & Tourism this summer. The course includes a work experience placement within the Travel & Tourism sector. On completion of her two week placement at the Rafayel Hotel in Battersea, Dora was offered to stay working on a part-time basis. They were so impressed with her that they went on to offer her a full time job during the summer before she started University, and she still works there twice a week while she studies for her degree in Tourism Management with Spanish.

This is an amazing and well deserved achievement for Dora, who is well on the way to paving a successful career within the Travel & Tourism industry.
