BTEC Level 2 Travel and Tourism
“Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.”
We offer vocational courses in Business and Travel and Tourism. Through this kind of education, we prepare students for a specific trade by having a more hands on experience and practical approach to the subjects taught. In year 12 students are encouraged and supported to find a placement in the relevant industry. These courses could lead to higher qualifications, such as, diplomas or a degree and they have opened up many career pathways for our students.
