Travel & Tourism
The Travel & Tourism industry continues to rapidly expand in Australia and across the globe. It is an exciting industry to work in with a wide range of sectors such as Travel Agencies, Airlines, State and Regional Government Tourism Bureaus, Eco-tourism and tourism attractions.
People skills – communication, customer service, teamwork and excellent personal presentation – are an essential part of working in the industry. You also need to be able to work well under pressure and to be highly organised. Our courses cover these skills plus many more and on completion you will be well placed on the pathway to a challenging and enjoyable career.
Our Travel & Tourism courses have been developed according to the requirements of the Tourism, Travel and Hospitality Training Package (SIT) and have been approved for delivery by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA). They are nationally recognised qualifications within the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF).
Training is delivered in stages which correspond to AQF Levels IV - VI. The preferred pathway for a qualification is for students to complete the requirements of the previous level qualification before progressing to the next level – thereby achieving more than one qualification. Applicants without the previous level qualification will be considered if they have relevant qualification and/or vocational experience. We aim to equip our graduates with the necessary skills and knowledge to enable them to successfully satisfy the demands of the workplace.
Course Delivery & Assessment Methods
Delivery and assessment strategies are selected to reflect the nature of the elements and performance criteria of the competency together with the needs and learning style of the participants. Qualifications are delivered over 15 hours of face-to-face and 5 hours of online learning per week. Assessment methodology may include but is not limited to: observation, project/report, case study, role play, exercises, activities; and written/oral tasks including multiple choice, questions and answer, essays, true/false and presentations
