Our Travel Agency work readiness programme is designed for a 2 month period to cover all areas of work within the travel agency environment.
Our programme will be divided into 3 phases. Each phase is crucial for the learner in deciding which area is best suited to them and at the same time acquiring the skills to enter the workplace with confidence and a true understanding of a potential employer’s expectations.
All dedicated facilitators and mentors are from the Travel and Tourism industry with the necessary evaluation skills and expertise to guide learners to the right career path.
At the end of the work readiness programme learners are placed in jobs and evaluated for 3 months. Learners who require additional training like Galileo, Amadeus, Sabre Reservations or any other course, can enroll in these courses at an additional cost. The idea is for the employer to provide this training once the job is created for the learner.
