The Edexcel BTEC Level 1/Level 2 First Award in Travel and Tourism has been developed to provide an engaging introduction to the sector for learners aged 14-16 years. It has been designed primarily for young people aged 14 to 19 who may wish to explore a vocational route throughout Key Stage 4, but it is also suitable for other learners who want a vocationally focused introduction to this area of study. It has been developed to give learners the opportunity to gain a broad understanding and knowledge of the Travel and Tourism sector. It will also give learners the opportunity to develop a range of personal skills and techniques that are essential for successful performance in working life. It will also support progression into a more specialised level 3 vocational or academic course or into an apprenticeship.
