Emma Jones: Where is she now?

Emma Jones joined Cadbury College in 2013 from Selly Park Technology College for Girls to study Business Studies, English Literature and Travel and Tourism, achieving the top A grade in Travel and Tourism at the end of her two years' studying here.

After her time at Cadbury College, Emma decided to search for employment rather than a university place, and applied to the full-time apprenticeship opportunity with Hilton Hotels.

She says: “I'm currently working at the Hilton Hotel by the NEC in Birmingham. It's a full-time apprenticeship and I get to experience different areas of the hotel and receive full training in the various departments. I've been there 6 months now and I'm really enjoying it. It's been a real eye-opener into how the hotel industry works and just what it feels like to work full time 9-5 most days! I'm very lucky if I get the weekend off! I'm throughly enjoying the experience though, and it has made me realise that this is the industry I want to work in throughout my career!"

Emma is planning on seeing through her apprenticeship over the next 6 months, and then she is looking to apply for a university place to study Hospitality Management to further progres her career. Well done Emma!
