Travel and Tourism BTEC 90 Credit Diploma Level 3 at The Manchester College
We all rely on the travel and tourism industry to make sure our holidays are as enjoyable and amazing as possible. The sector is responsible for everything from helping us find the best places to visit and booking a trip, to checking our bags at the airport and making sure our accommodation is up to scratch. This 90-credit, Level 3 Diploma in Travel and Tourism is an exciting and demanding qualification that will help you develop the skills and expertise to forge one of a number of rewarding careers in the industry. You’ll learn all about the entire travel and tourism business, understanding how it operates and why it’s so successful. You’ll cover all aspects of the industry, from marketing destinations to the transportation infrastructure required to get passengers there. You’ll focus on customer service too, exploring how travel agents operate and the roles and responsibilities of holiday reps abroad. You’ll look closer at the kinds of entertainment provided to holiday makers and even get to research a number of countries and destinations in the UK, Europe and long-haul! We are also proud to be an official member of the Institute of Travel and Tourism.
Throughout this course you’ll be assessed at regular stages, using methods such as group presentations, the design and creation of holiday posters, role plays, written reports and research, as well as controlled map work assignments. You’ll need to be able to take part in work experience opportunities and extra-curricular activities too, which may include time during the evening or weekends.
All full-time courses are free to 16-18 year olds who meet funding regulations. For further details please call the Course Enquiry Team on 03333 222 444.
If you want to develop your knowledge even further after this 90-credit course, you can continue onto a second year of Travel and Tourism with us at The Manchester College and earn an Extended Diploma in the subject. From here, you could apply to university and study a degree in tourism, hospitality or even event management. You’ll also have the skills and experience you need to secure a rewarding career in the travel and tourism industry. This could entail anything from events manager for a cruise line to a holiday rep abroad for a tour operator!
