Message from the Chair

As the long overdue sunshine arrives, thoughts are turning towards the summer months and I, like many, am looking forward to the Chairman’s Summer Cocktails in July when the winners of the 2013 Student Awards will be announced.

The Education and Training Committee continues to work closely with leading educators in promoting and developing our profession through supporting and developing a number of initiatives. I am particularly pleased to see the continuing success and growth of our Centres of Excellence scheme and the development of our leading student event, Future You.

If you would like to get involved or find out more about these initiatives, or the work of the Education & Training Committee, please contact us at training@itt.co.uk.

ITT was delighted to support the CPD Conference for FE lecturers of Travel & Tourism and Aviation held on 26 March at the University of Wolverhampton.

Moderated by ITT President, Trevor Harding, the delegates had the opportunity to be updated on the latest industry resources and educational initiatives by leading employers including the Association of Cruise Experts, Travelport, OTT, Perfect Weddings Abroad, Training for Travel and Servisair.

The day also included a lively debate on the value of qualifications to the industry as well as the welcome opportunity to network with their peers.

The event was kindly sponsored by Columbus Media, Learn Travel and City & Guilds and plans are already underway for next year's event!
