Tourism is booming in Australia. Increasing prosperity among Asian markets, better aviation access and a competitive exchange rate are all factors driving growth in overseas visitors. Tourism is classified as a super growth industry in Australia.
This course gives you the hands on skills needed to work in the growing tourism industry. You'll be exposed to a range of tourism experts throughout your learning who will help to develop your knowledge and skills to meet the needs of your customers.
As well as developing skills in tourism destinations, services, sales, communicating and advising customers you will also learn about planning and organising events in a tourism organisation. This could be from conducting tours, corodinating a range of activities to encourage visitors to a tourism destination to small public or events such as celebrations or seasonal attractions. The course is designed so that you will undertake a component of your training in a tourism organisation (vineyard, cellar door, local adventure centre, tour operator etc) so you can apply your learning and use the real life experiences towards your assessments and completions.
This traineeship will provide you the best of both worlds. You'll be both learning and working, allowing you maximum time in your job, but ensuring you have access to teachers, structured learning programs and masterclasses. The course is delivered predominately flexible delivery with scheduled block attendance throughout the year or individualised training plans as needed.
