Walsall College is welcoming representatives from across Europe this week, as it hosts an international conference looking to increase skills training in the tourism industry.

In what is the third conference for the European Vocational Tourism Education scheme, education and business partners from across the continent have descended on the town.

The College's Travel and Tourism students presented their views to the visitors, who were also given a tour of the College's vocational training areas.

The College also arranged for their European partners to visit popular regional attractions such as the Black Country Museum, Walsall Leather Museum and Stratford-upon-Avon.

Hospitality Management lecturer, David Layton, said the College's hosting of the conference would be of great benefit to the students, allowing them to experience 'presenting to an international audience'.
