Our first cohort of students at The Giles Business Travel Academy have just four weeks to go of their six month course leading to a CTH endorsed Diploma in Business Travel.
By the end of this course they will be fully equipped to take on the role of a business travel consultant. They will have qualified in Sabre GDS and VA1 Fares and Ticketing, as well as studying a range of topics including sales, marketing, account management and customer service.
During their time with us they will have completed two weeks of work experience, spent time with numerous suppliers and had the opportunity to work with mentors in our partner Travel Management Company so they can get first hand experience.
They will graduate in June having had some truly memorable opportunities that will set them up well for a highly successful career in the travel industry.
If you know anyone who might be interested in taking the first steps towards a similar career, our next course starts in September and we are now taking applications. Visit the Giles Business Travel Academy website for more details.
Our students at The Giles Business Academy were visited today by our local MP, Cheryl Gillan. Mrs Gillan has been a supporter of the Academy since it started and the fact she took time out to meet with us was much appreciated.
Mrs Gillan shared her personal travel experiences with us along with her thoughts on current travel related issues – including HS2, travel infrastructure and the Heathrow third runway debate.
We are delighted to be responsible for the curriculum and tutoring at the Giles Business Travel Academy.
Gary at the Giles Business Travel Academy
It’s now just over a month until the launch of the Giles Business Travel Academy. For the past few months we have been busy researching, designing and writing the course content for this 6 month programme that will provide students with an unrivalled opportunity to learn all there is to know about the world of business travel.
As the Course Director, Gary will be leading a team of trainers to deliver this incredible six month programme from a purpose built training centre in Buckinghamshire, UK. By the end of the programme the students will have all they need to start their career in business travel including industry recognised Fares & Ticketing qualifications (VA1), Global Distribution System (Sabre) as well as an accredited certificate from the academy.
