BACKGROUND

During the opening ceremony of the NTCE on Wednesday, we saw how the young people from different provinces were awarded for their achievements in Tourism.  They could have not have achieved this without the dedicated guidance and support from their teacher.  Teachers spend hours of their free time to ensure that these learners grow and develop beyond the normal scope of a classroom.  However, very often, this type of dedication is  overlooked, unnoticed and unrecognised. The focus is often on blaming the teachers for everything that goes wrong. If learners do not perform – blame the teacher; if learners are rude – blame the teacher; if the learners are late for class – blame the teachers; if the learner becomes a doctor – praise the learner.

It is high time the dedication and excellence get awarded by giving teachers the recognition they deserve.

Ladies and gentlemen, tonight I announce the birth of the

TRAVELPORT/TRAVEL WITH FLAIR

International GTTP Curriculum – Passport to the World

PASSPORT TO THE WORLD was developed by GTTP country directors and teachers. The course provides students with a basic understanding of tourism as a global industry. The curriculum is “teacher friendly” and is designed in such a way that basic concepts and information are combined with activities that focus the students on their own community or region.

In some countries, like Russia, PASSPORT TO THE WORLD, is the officially-approved introductory curriculum. In Ireland, PASSPORT TO THE WORLD was incorporated into Ireland’s new national curriculum. In other member countries, like Hungary and Canada, PASSPORT TO THE WORLD is used to supplement existing curriculum. In Brazil PASSPORT TO THE WORLD was adopted by the federal government of Brazil as part of its drive to expand tourism education in state and municipal schools throughout Brazil. In Kenya PASSPORT TO THE WORLD was approved by the education ministry and is used to introduce learners to this subject. For countries that are just starting to offer this subject, PASSPORT TO THE WORLD can be used as the introductory curriculum and provides a basis for understanding the industry and for going on to further study.

Learners who master the material in PASSPORT TO THE WORLD are eligible to receive the PASSPORT TO THE WORLD CERTIFICATE OF ACHIEVEMENT. To earn this certificate, learners must complete a portfolio of work that demonstrates competencies, including knowledge of the subject matter, skills, and a professional work ethic.

The Institute of Travel & Tourism (ITT), the UK’s leading travel professional society, and the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) have endorsed this certificate.
