The Diploma in Travel and Tourism aims to provide students with the knowledge and practical skills required to perform effectively in the Travel and Tourism arena. This qualification was developed in partnership with industry to meet their needs and produce employable students with relevant skills in the field of Travel and Tourism. The qualification promotes understanding of the value that Tourism can provide to society, and the economy at large. This program was created with objectives regarding the shortage of skills within the industry and in response to real needs: local, regional and national. With world sporting and entertainment events being brought into the country we need to prepare practitioners to handle such events which this course aims to achieve.
