Work Readiness Programme
The Travel Training Academy offers the only work readiness programme of its kind in South Africa, which is specific to the travel industry. We have developed our own course to assist learners who would like to follow a career path in the travel industry but don’t necessarily have the skills to do so.
Our programme is designed for a 2 month period to cover all sectors in the industry including Retail Travel, Wholesale Travel, Visitor Information, Tour Operators, Cruising, Transportation, Events and Services.
We have developed a three phase programme during which candidates will learn critical skills to assist them in attaining their first job in the travel industry. Skills such as interviewing, interpersonal and effective communication will be covered as well as psychometric testing to establish which sector they are most suited for.
Coaching and mentoring by qualified and experienced facilitators is included in the course to assist in setting the foundation for a successful career path in travel. The programme offers candidates the knowledge and practical skills of being in the workplace and integrating into the environment.
By the end of the programme, candidates will already have some experience to show on their CV’s which affords them many more opportunities when searching for jobs.
