Travel and Tourism A Level at Lady Lumley's School

Course description

The Travel and Tourism GCE is a highly relevant and valuable course which explores in detail an ever expanding industry which students are very likely to be already very much aware of and indeed part of in this area. The course allows students the opportunity to research, recommend and apply their skills to real life issues within the travel and tourism industry. Case Study material and a range of different destinations, tourism genres, and relevant organisations form the basis for their studies. This is a dynamic as well as demanding course which will be both enjoyable and thought provoking and the ability to critically examine job roles, strategies and current tourism issues will allow students to develop a genuine feel for a vitally important industry both now and in the future.
