Teaching and Learning Styles
This is a vocational course. It is strongly based on the experience of local Travel and Tourism providers. Emphasis is on independent learning, research skills, and your ability to work as part of a team. Formal teaching for each unit will prepare you for assignments and exams.

Two different work experience placements are offered to Double award students. Single award students have the option of a three day placement to support their studies.

Extra-Curricular Activities

Visits to employers and Higher Education institutions

Assessment
The AS course consists of three units (two coursework units and one exam). If you do the Double award you take six units (four coursework and two exams over two blocks of your timetable). This is worth two AS grades.

The same pattern applies for the A2 course. The Double A level award is worth two A level grades.


Progression Opportunities
Many students go on to do degree courses in Tourism Management or Event Management. Others opt for employer training schemes such as those run by major travel agencies, airlines and leisure companies, or do specialist qualifications such as ABTA or airline ticketing.
