Megan Frame NC level 5 Travel and Tourism

Megan Frame could not wait to start studying at West Lothian College after choosing her career path while still at school.

Megan is a NC level 5 Travel and Tourism student here at West Lothian College. She has been interested in the travel industry since she was a child so when she saw the course on the college website she wasted no time in applying. She was accepted and has immersed herself in the course, so much so that she already has a favourite element of her studies:

“I really enjoy the Tourist Destination class which is the geographical side of things where we learn about all the different capital cities and various cultures from around the world. I find that kind of stuff really interesting.”

While 17 year old Megan is enjoying her course and plans to continue onto Level 6 next year, she is quick to point out she would have to reconsider if she landed her dream job!

“My ultimate goal is to work as cabin crew with British Airways because they do a bit of everything. They aren’t just specifically long or short haul and they go to so many destinations. I want to see as much of the world as possible so I think working for British Airways will give me the best chance of achieving that.”

Megan considers herself lucky that she knew from a young age exactly what she wanted to be.  Many people take a lot longer to find their calling and the great thing about college is there is no wrong time to return to education. This is a point Megan certainly agrees with.

“I knew right away what I wanted to be but its alright if you don’t know what you want to do yet. There are adults out there who don’t know what they want to do yet either and that’s fine too! Just don’t be afraid to try things because you may find that what you were looking for turns up where you least expect it.”
