Careers/ Education

ITT shows its commitment to careers and education by recognition of good practice, student awards, consultancy and much more.

ITT runs an Education & Training Committee chaired by ITT Board Director Claire Steiner. Claire organises student events on behalf of ITT, such as the hugely popular 'Future You' seminar at WTM.

She also represents ITT on external education/ industry bodies. Educational partnerships are an important part of ITT’s careers and education work.

The most recent being with the Global Travel & Tourism Partnership, a multi-country educational programme to introduce students to careers in travel and tourism.

Passport to the World

The Global Travel and Tourism Partnership (GTTP)

The GTTP  was originally created by American Express Foundation as a way of giving back to communities where they operated globally – since then many global companies including Amadeus, Carlson Family Foundation and Carlson Wagonlit Travel, dnata,Enterprise Holidings, Eurostar, Hertz, HRG, KDS, Marriott International and Travelport have all joined the scheme as supporting partners and their senior representatives form the Advisory Board.   It is a not for profit organisation, relying on the sponsorship of the supporting partners and the co-operation of the member countries involved.

The GTTP is a multi-country educational program to introduce students to career opportunities in Travel & Tourism. Currently they have more than 500,000 students in fourteen countries - Brazil, Canada, Hong Kong and China, Hungary, India, Ireland, Jamaica, Philippines, Russia, Kenya, South Africa, Tanzania and the UK. School systems provide teachers and classrooms; local and international companies provide financial and in-kind support and some 3,100 local businesses share their expertise with teachers and students.

Each member country's curriculum is developed in accordance with national educational requirements. The GTTP's global curriculum, PASSPORT TO THE WORLD, supplements national curricula, and serves as the introductory curriculum in countries just starting Travel & Tourism education.    

If you are interested in finding out how the GTTP could help support your learning, or would like to get involved, then please email gttp@itt.co.uk.
