TRAVEL staff in the London area who want to swap the office for the beach can get a head start by signing on for a new course at Lewisham College.

The 15-week holiday resort representative course, which starts in October, prepares students for life as an overseas rep. It is being run in conjunction with MyTravel, which will help with the initial course entry interviews.

Students who pass the City and Guilds level two course will be guaranteed an interview with MyTravel for a possible job as a rep in summer 2007.
