COURSE INFORMATION

The travel and tourism sector continues to grow at a rapid pace, with the amount of travel undertaken by individuals for both leisure and business purposes continuing to increase. An expansion in the short-break market has led to a growth of regional airports in the UK and across Europe and a rise in the number of new hospitality enterprises including health spas and boutique hotels.  This rapid expansion has led to huge demand for a more flexibly skilled workforce.

The qualification has been designed to provide an all-round introduction to the travel and tourism sector for students who wish to consider a career in one of its many connected industries, including retail travel, visitor attractions, accommodation, transport and tour operations.
