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.|
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 Wagonlit Travel, Delta Enterprise, Hertz, HRG, KDS, Starwood 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 twelve countries - Brazil, Canada, Hong Kong and China, Hungary, Ireland, Jamaica, 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.
The work of GTTP in the UK is supported by an Advisory Board, whose time is generously given to help support the work and development of the GTTP.
