BBT ROUNDTABLE


FINDING THE The first in a series of


BBT Roundtables brought together students, education providers and the GTMC to discuss education, apprenticeships and future career prospects


T 80 MAY/JUNE

At the same time, is our industry making its voice heard among academics, and pro- viding access to relevant work experience to


ensure future travel buyers and consultants are equipped for a successful career in a dynamic sector? These questions, and more, were tackled at the

My events management course wasn’t focused on the corporate sector… it’s a shame, because there is a market. People tend to fall into business travel. LUCY: We have covered the business side, like marketing, customer service, but the work placements are with hotels, restaurants and tour operators. IAN: This is why Travilearn decided to look at the diploma course; that’s such a major supplement to the training that’s taking place at the moment.
