Department Information

Travel and Tourism has historically been a popular option for students in Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5. In 2019 we will be offering brand new qualifications to students which are aimed at supporting students who are interested in learning about the travel and tourism industry with a view to progressing to a wide range of higher education courses or employment in the travel and tourism sector. The travel and tourism sector is the UK’s third-largest employer, employing nearly 3 million people and tourism is one of the fastest-growing sectors in the UK.

In year 11, learners continue the BTEC Tech Award in Travel and Tourism and complete the final unit required to complete the qualification.
