There is a demand for innovation within the industry and a need to respond to the changes not only in travel trends but in the expectations and needs of travellers.
This qualification will not only focus on worldwide destinations but look to the importance of UK travel. This course will require you to look in depth at different aspects of the customer experience and require you to think differently in regards to key themes such as sustainability and the combination of tech and travel.
Over this two year course you will study 18 units in some of the following topic areas:
- The UK travel and tourism industry
- Customer service in travel and tourism
- Preparing for a career in travel and tourism
- Investigating airline cabin crew
- UK heritage attractions
- Responsible tourism
- Business travel
- Travel and tourism destinations
- Work experience in travel and tourism
- Marketing for travel and tourism.
Lessons will include both teacher and learner-led activities that will see you learn through a variety of approaches such as lectures, industry workshops, online activity, presentations and group activity. Assessment will vary but will largely be through written assignments, role plays, group work and presentation.
