Travel apprenticeships

The new travel consultant apprenticeship standard has been developed by employers representing both corporate and leisure travel, recognising the common approach taken by the two sides of the industry. 

The standard incorporates the knowledge, skills and behaviours employers have defined for today’s industry. It has been designed so it applies across the sector, allowing organisations to incorporate their own ways of working, products and services into the learning and development, whilst ensuring it meets one national standard.
