BTEC Level 3 in Travel and Tourism at Rednock School

Course description

What will I learn on this A Level course?
This qualification has been designed to provide an all-round introduction to the travel and tourism sector for those who wish to further their careers in one of its many connected industries, including retail travel, visitor attractions, accommodation, transport and tour operations.

Units in the qualification reflect the ever-increasing need for staff with diverse skills who are able to handle a wide variety of situations; possible units include investigating jobs within the Cruise Industry, working as a holiday representative or developing knowledge of events, exhibitions and conferences. In addition, three destination geography units have been developed, focusing on UK, European and long-haul destinations. These units aim to develop learners’ knowledge of key destinations in these regions and the dynamics of the market for different destinations.
What kind of student is this course suitable for?
This option is suitable for those looking for a more vocational qualification. It will complement subjects such as Geography and Business due to its content but will provide a good contrast to many others with its clear links to the workplace. This course may be more suited to some students since there is flexibility in unit choice, leading to various levels within the qualification and it is currently only examined through coursework.

Entry requirements

An Advanced level candidate is expected to have passed 5 GCSE subjects at grades A*-C or an appropriate intermediate level course. A geography qualification is desirable.
