ITT shows its commitment to careers and education by recognition of good practice, student awards, consultancy and much more.
ITT runs an Education & Training Committee chaired by ITT Board Director Claire Steiner. Claire organises student events on behalf of ITT, such as the hugely popular 'Future You' seminar at WTM.
She also represents ITT on external education/ industry bodies. Educational partnerships are an important part of ITT’s careers and education work.
|The most recent being with the Global Travel & Tourism Partnership, a multi-country educational programme to introduce students to careers in travel and tourism.|
The GTTP, through the ITT and People 1st, is now making PASSPORT TO THE WORLD available to teachers in the UK, to support a range of Level 1, 2 and 3 qualifications such as the Diploma in Travel & Tourism and BTEC, OCR and City & Guilds Travel & Tourism vocational qualifications.
In addition to the detailed Instructor Guide, we are also making available the Resource Guide and a range of worksheets and activities.
To make these materials more useable and valuable for teachers, we have produced a Teacher Guide, which outlines the content and provides suggestions on how the various materials can be utilised to support existing UK Travel & Tourism qualifications.
These materials are available free to any UK educational establishment offering Travel & Tourism qualifications - please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We would ask you to please acknowledge the source of the materials that you use with your students. Any feedback would also be welcome.
Using Passport to the World
Each of the five Units is divided into ‘Sessions’ – for the purposes of this Teacher guide we have used the word ‘Section’ rather than ‘session’. For each Unit, the expected Outcomes for students are listed and the content of each section is outlined. The ‘Resources’ available to support each unit are then listed, as are the ‘Worksheets and Activities’ for students that can be used for each Unit. An additional Module has been developed on Technology in Travel & Tourism, which is also included in the Teacher Guide. Finally, we have suggested examples of how all the information for each Unit can be used to support UK Travel & Tourism qualifications, but please note that not all Awarding Organisation units have been referenced to as this would have made the guide too cumbersome. Teachers are welcome to adapt the materials to the needs of their students and institutions.
Please note that Passport to the World was written and published in the USA, so contains numerous American English spellings!
