Travel and Tourism Management Level 3

Travel and Tourism is a continually growing industry that supports a huge number of roles. Tourism brings people together. It teaches us about the world we live in. It strengthens communities and broadens the mind. Our Travel and Tourism course explore the reasons why people travel and develops the knowledge needed to work in the tourism industry.

Tourism is one of the most economically important industrial activities in the world. More than a billion people take an international tourist trip every year and this number is increasing year on year.  Tourism accounts for nearly 10% of global GDP and one in every 11 jobs.

We all look forward to our holidays but we don’t often think about the processes, systems and activities which enable us to have an enjoyable experience whilst away from home. This course focuses specifically on providing knowledge and skills to be able to work in this ever-growing sector.

  • Explore communication skills required to meet customer’s needs.

No. While you can choose to write your assignments by hand, the majority of students type up their work in a word processor and then submit it via email to their tutors. A typed essay is much easier to save and edit and makes it easier for tutors to read.
