Travel & Tourism


The qualification provides an engaging and stimulating introduction to the world of travel and tourism. This qualification includes both UK and international tourism, and allows you to explore current issues affecting global travel and tourism organisations and destinations. It also includes topics such as destination management and relationships between organisations, as well as social and ethical responsibilities/sustainability. You will explore some of the key areas within the sector, including: the contribution of travel and tourism to the UK economy; tourism development; trends in travel and tourism; how organisations meet customer needs; the location and appeal of different types of travel and tourism destinations; and the impact of travel and tourism on the local community, environment and economy. You will also prepare a holiday plan to meet customer needs, understand the different factors that influence global travel and tourism, and learn how travel and tourism organisations and destinations respond to these factors.

    The qualification consists of three components that will give you the opportunity to develop broad knowledge and understanding of the travel and tourism sector. Components 1 and 3 are assessed by OBA through tasks or assignments. Your teacher will mark these, and so you will receive feedback as to how you are getting on. The assessment for Component 2 covers the different factors that influence global travel and tourism and is sent away to be marked. Component 3 builds directly on Components 1 and 2, and brings your learning together, using the knowledge, skills and techniques you have developed about travel and tourism organisations, features of destinations, types of visitors, travel, holidays and accommodation, factors influencing travel and tourism, how organisations respond to these factors, and managing tourism through sustainability and destination management, in a specific context. All of the work that you do throughout the course, including the tasks or assignments, will prepare you for this final task. The three components focus on the assessment of knowledge, skills and practices. These are all essential to developing a basis for progression and, therefore, learners need to achieve all components in order to achieve the qualification.
