ABTA launches careers hub

ABTA has launched an online hub providing information and advice for those interested in a career in travel.

It provides latest information on routes to entry, learning opportunities and industry contacts.

Included on are details of apprenticeship schemes and available courses at universities and colleges that are partnered with ABTA.

Announcing the launch of the hub, ABTA said that it had worked closely with members and educators to understand the skills needed to support career development.

It added: "ABTA is committed to supporting ongoing career development in travel through its conferences and events programme, which is focused on providing practical, learning opportunities, ABTA's Education Partner Scheme, ABTA's support of the 'Take off in Travel' career guide and its work with industry to improve professional standards in apprenticeships.

"Through its new dedicated education and careers hub, ABTA aims to share useful information and insight, which is split into three sections: learning and development opportunities; universities and colleges in ABTA's Partner Scheme; and information for people seeking apprenticeships."

Victoria Bacon, ABTA's director of brand and business development said: "Over the past two years in particular, we have focused our efforts on bringing our members and education partners closer together through the ABTA Education Partner Scheme.

"We have also grown the range of learning opportunities for industry staff through our expanded events and conferences programme, so it's a natural next step for ABTA to create a dedicated hub with relevant resources for anyone pursuing their career in travel.

"There are a huge range of exciting paths for people who are either starting their career or looking to develop their careers further, so it can be difficult to know where to start. The purpose of this hub is to provide employees of today, and the future, with the resources to discover the opportunities on offer. We hope to showcase the range of opportunities in this fantastic industry while also making it easier for people to navigate the options."
