Travel and Tourism
Travel and Tourism is a highly relevant subject in our modern society. With the vast range of transport systems available and the many tourist destinations worldwide, students will be able to research, analyse and develop their awareness of global and environmental issues facing the largest industry in the world.
It provide a broad basis for further education or training in related occupations. Students will develop a more critical and holistic understanding and the connections between different parts of the industry and employment opportunities. There is a strong focus on sustainability and how the industry manages tourism in a way that will function successfully economically, environmentally and socio-culturally in the future.
Students have to undertake controlled assessment to look tourism in the UK and Europe as well as planning a successful itinerary for a holiday of their choice for an intended market. This allows them the chance to research more into something that interests them and to develop skills needed for work in an associated industry beyond the classroom.
Several of our former students have gone forward to study tourism in higher education or have found employment in the industry.
