Travel and Tourism Intent
The travel and tourism curriculum at Immanuel College has as its foundation the belief that we are ‘all God’s children’. In humanities, our values of perseverance, character and hope underpin all our work.
The intent of the travel and tourism curriculum is to:
- Broaden our students’ horizons by engaging with the role tourism has to play locally, nationally and internationally. Through this we encourage our students to think independently and to enjoy and explore the physical and human world around them developing their character. 1
- Examine the interconnectedness of communities across the globe, appreciating the diverse range of cultures, languages, customs and traditions in our international community, alongside our own British values.2
- Understand the role tourism plays socially, economically and environmentally, against a backdrop of an ever increasingly globalised world.
- Explore different aspects of the service sector and become familiar with the processes and procedures of the workplace, including how to offer excellent customer service and the importance of upholding professional duties.
- Foster students’ interpersonal skills, emphasising the importance of maintaining professional standards, working independently and showing initiative. The study of Travel and Tourism offers real world situations which provides relevance, enrichment, hope and aspirations to our students.3
