Who is this course for?

Those who wish to gain an internationally recognised qualification in order to work in the travel industry.

About the course
You will complete an initial travel geography study pack and work through a series of exercises with the guidance and support of your tutor, whose experience in the airline industry will help you to understand how and why things work in air fares and ticketing.

You will study:

How will I be assessed?

You will take an open book exam in lesson time and will be awarded your qualification if you pass.

    "I really enjoyed the course as there are lots of oppotunities for the future; I don't have just one career option but lots of possibilities. I also like the trips, there's always something new to learn. Last year we went on a trip to British Airways where we learnt more about the airline business."
