Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs B. Bishop

Tourism

Prerequisite: Level 1 Numeracy Level 1 Literacy.

Travel and Tourism is a course designed to help you explore domestic and international tourism. It is an innovative and interesting way to take part in many curriculum subject areas including English, Maori, Geography and History.
This is a 2-year programme of study. Two options will be available in 2021. 

Option 1 will include all credits listed below and on completion, credits will contribute towards a nationally recognised qualification – New Zealand Certificate in Tourism Level 2. The total number of credits available for this option will be 28. Three units, namely 23761, 23767 and 24726 will be self-directed units. Students who choose  option 1 will be expected to work on these units with limited guidance from the teacher and assessment times will need to be arranged. (All units in this option are required in order to achieve the National Certificate in Tourism - Level 2) 

The remaining credits required to achieve the qualification are completed in Year 13 

Option 2 will only include Unit Standards 24730, 24728, 24732, 24729, 24731 and 24727. This will amount to 21 credits.  These units will be taught and assessed during lessons. This option is great for those who wish to gain Level 2 credits and who are interested in Tourism, however, there will not be enough credits to achieve the above mentioned certificate. 

Both options are a pre-requisite into the Year 13 Tourism programme. Please be aware that you will not qualify for the Level 2 certificate in Tourism studying option 2.
