BTEC First in Travel and Tourism L1/2
This BTEC Firsts qualification is provided for the needs of learners who are aiming to achieve a Level 2 qualification. However, we have recognised that for some learners, achieving this standard in all units within one to two years may not be possible. Therefore, the qualifications have been designed as Level 1/Level 2 qualifications, with grades available at Level 2 and at Level 1 Pass.
BTECs are vocationally related qualifications, where learners develop knowledge and understanding by applying their learning and skills in a work-related context. The qualifications are popular and effective because they enable learners to take responsibility for their own learning and to develop skills that are essential for the modern-day workplace. These skills include: teamworking, working from a prescribed brief, working to deadlines, presenting information effectively, accurately completing administrative tasks and processes. BTEC Firsts motivate learners, and open doors to progression to further study and responsibility in the workplace.
The qualification provides an engaging and stimulating introduction to the world of travel and tourism giving you the opportunity to develop knowledge and technical skills in a practical learning environment. You will explore some of the key areas within the sector, including accommodation, tourism development and promotion, transport and visitor attractions. You will investigate the importance of the travel and tourism sector to the UK, and investigate different types of customer and UK destinations. You will also have the opportunity to study international travel and tourism.
