Mrs Barbour’s Travel and Tourism class were given a presentation by Callum Player of AM Sports Tours last week. Callum addressed the skills and attitudes needed for employment such as employees responsibilities, timekeeping, flexibility and adaptability especially when dealing with group tours.
Callum went on to give specific advice with regards to vocational skills and knowledge, and shared pathways for the pupils to take. Callum also gave the pupils the opportunity to create and adapt a specific tour package for a real life scenario which encouraged the pupils to develop their skills in building accurate itineraries and developing customer care skills.
It proved to be an invaluable opportunity in learning for life as well as work and we wish to ‘thank’ Callum for his enthusiasm and time.
