GTTP is a multi-country educational program to introduce high school learners to career opportunities in Travel & Tourism

The National Tourism Careers Expo (NTCE)

What is the NCTE?

National Tourism Careers Expo (NTCE) is fast becoming an electrifying trademark event in the tourism industry. Presented by three partners which include the National Department of Tourism (NDT), Economic Development, Environmental Affairs and Tourism (DEDEAT – Eastern Cape)), and the Culture, Arts, Tourism, Hospitality and Sport Sector Education and Training Authority (CATHSSETA).
Addressing the skills development challenge and promoting growth in the tourism sector, the NTCE is now it its fourth year.

At the expo you can visit over 50 exhibition stands hosted by leading local and international companies, educational institutions and small businesses involved in tourism in South Africa. It’s your chance to mix with potential employers and find out about bursaries and learnerships and get a taste of the vibrant world of tourism.

Here is a glimpse of what you can expect when you visit:

  • Create your own CV in a virtual classroom and get the chance to upload it to a central database
  • Mix your own colourful, non-alcoholic drink and see if you have what it takes to become one of SA’s best cocktail makers (or mixologists as they are now called)
  • Hear from young, successful entrepreneurs in tourism and find out what it takes to kick start your own career in the sector

The NTCE is directly aimed at high school and tertiary/FET learners (past and current) looking to enter or advance in the tourism industry.

The NTCE is not exclusively targeted at the learners – the educators are just as important as you are the drivers behind the tourism industry.

The Expo is open to all members of the public who are interested in tourism, whether you are currently in the industry or not.

The NTCE needs you to make this a successful and impactful experience for our future tourism candidates.

The NTCE requires the support of the industry at large in order to be truly successful in its endeavours.

The NTCE would like to encourage unemployed graduates to register on our data base.
