Travel & Tourism
The travel industry is beginning to bounce back after lockdown with TUI and Jet2 saying after the lockdown roadmap dates were set out that bookings increased by 500%. You will be a part of rebuilding this exciting industry.
The course will capture the real essence of the whole industry and give you an overview of every part of the industry. We are working with two travel partners: Travel Counsellors, who book 450,000 holidays a year, and ABTA, who provide guidance and advise in the industry. This qualification not only gives you this overview but hands on work experience.
We believe that to understand the tourism industry is about getting involved, so alongside the theory you will be able to experience how the tourism industry works with educational visits, guest speakers and work experience.
We will have a designated suite for students to use for this work experience and you will be turning transforming it as our own travel retail business and have the opportunity to use in house training programmes and booking holidays.
The team at HRC have a varied background working in the industry including working in the UK and Abroad in roles from resort reps, travel agents, tour operators and visitor attractions. Not only will you have access to work experience at the College through working with Travel Counsellors and ABTA but alongside your qualification you will take part in trips and visits both in the UK and abroad (COVID allowing) and see behind the scenes in the travel industry. We believe in an all-round experience so that you can choose which area you want to work in!
