Since 2010 tourism has been the fastest growing sector in the UK in employment terms. Britain is forecast to have a tourism industry worth over £257 billion by 2025.
The Travel and Tourism industry provides lots of opportunities for young people looking towards future employment and the travel and tourism course allows pupils to access these, expanding their knowledge of the World on a local and global scale. Investigating the effects tourism has on people, the economy and the environment will also be studied, whilst also examining current trends.
As a “Skills for Work” course it also develops the skills, knowledge and attitudes needed for work in any area with a particular focus on the Travel and Tourism industry.
