Nick Payton

Teaching Facilitator

I joined the travel and tourism team as a teacher in 2019, after 15 years of working in different sectors within the industry, and travelling and working around the world as a holiday rep. I made a career of working abroad by moving up the ranks and I loved the excitement of moving to a different country every six months – it really was the best job in the world, living and working in the sun. I love to share this information with my students and inspire them to take on similar career paths.

I returned to the UK in 2013 and took to the skies as a senior cabin crew member for Flybe, operating short-haul flights to European destinations. I enjoy combining my passion for the skies with fun practical lessons, and I’m not afraid to dig out the old uniform and show my students how it’s done!
