A Travel and Tourism BTEC qualification tells potential employers what well-developed skills/attributes you have. For example, research skills, excellent time management, that you are able to work in a team, and that you have the necessary ‘people’ skills to manage others effectively.
You will develop a range of skills required for a managerial career through a range of varied and interesting projects, tailored to match your interests and ambitions.
You will also have the opportunity to complete a relevant work placement, to use your newly acquired skills in an industry setting. A variety of trips will also be organised for you to see the industry in action.
