This course is designed to introduce students to important knowledge and skills required for working in the tourist industry, a very important sector of our economy for earning overseas exchange and for employing New Zealanders in a vast range of jobs.
Students are supplied a workbook for each topic. There are six assessments, one for each standard. In addition to work done in the workbook, supplementary work is done, mainly based on short film but also including guest talks and other methods.
