Travel and Tourism has become an integral part of many countries' economies. As a rapidly changing, multidisciplinary subject, there are many approaches to teaching it. This book brings together the theory and practice of learning for Travel and Tourism as a vocational pathway offering the educational practitioner a pedagogical framework for the delivery of their subject. Huggett and Pownall outline the vast range of programmes and qualifications you may encounter in your teaching. They also consider the skills, knowledge and understanding learners need to develop, taking into account the life experiences and aspirations of different groups of learners, and consider how these are transferable from one sub-sector to another. The range of job roles within the Travel and Tourism industry is immense and will continue to evolve. As well as private industry, the authors consider the public and voluntary sectors and look at organizations that have been set up to support and benefit tourism, taking into account policies and initiatives that stakeholders introduce.
