Travel and Tourism is a vital part of the Kenyan economy and for many countries worldwide. It is an ever changing industry which has faced numerous challenges over recent years but also one which offers numerous diverse career opportunities.
The Business and Technology Education Council (BTEC) is a provider (existing as part of Pearson Education Ltd) of secondary school leaving qualifications and Further education qualifications in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
BTEC qualifications, especially Level 3, are accepted by many universities (excluding Cambridge and Oxford unless combined with more qualifications) when assessing the suitability of applicants for admission, and many such universities base their conditional admissions offers on a student’s predicted BTEC grades.
If you are one of the many who would like a career in the industry, Braeburn Mombasa International School have launched a Level 3 BTEC National in Travel and Tourism.
On the course, you will be given the “opportunity to investigate ket aspects of a multitude of organisations that make up the Travel and Tourism industry and have as advantage as many of those dream destinations and organisations are just on our doorstep.”
As Travel and Tourism also has a strong foundation in Business Studies, students will also study key areas including Marketing and Event Management. It is also possible to combine the BTEC Travel and Tourism and Business Studies courses.
On completing the course, students will have gained specialist knowledge and experience which will give them an advantage in the jobs market or act as a stepping stone to further qualifications.
In the past, students have gone on to study for degrees in Travel and Tourism as well as Business and other areas.
