Travel and Tourism

Ayrshire College


Ayr Campus


Travel and tourism is an exciting and enjoyable industry. If you’d like to work with people and help them have a great visit or holiday experience, this course will develop the skills and knowledge you need. Like all our tourism courses, it’s fun, modern, and entirely relevant for the current tourism industry.

With this Level 7 course, you’ll look in detail at global tourism and how important it is to the economy, how we can sell tourist destinations, and what it’s got to offer visitors. You’ll look at tour guiding and the importance of well-organised tours and itineraries to a tourist attraction.

You’ll learn how to market your destinations effectively, including making the best use of digital and social media. You’ll focus on customer care and satisfaction and explore business and ICT elements.

You’ll learn how to produce reports and develop clear written and verbal communication skills.
