  • Why choose this qualification?

    The qualification has been developed following consultation with further education colleges and adult and community learning who requested new level 2 qualifications that were graded. They are intended primarily for learners post 16 who are interested in Travel and Tourism but have not studied Travel and Tourism at key stage 4 or who have not achieved higher grades in this subject.

    The qualification may be used within a 16-19 study programme and is intended to give learners the knowledge, understanding and skills that will enable them to progress to further study in Travel and Tourism or related area at a higher level.

    The qualification is part of a suite of graded qualifications that Gateway Qualifications has developed to complement the Suite of Skills qualifications in Travel and Tourism. The level 2 units in the qualification have the same content and pass criteria as some of the units in the Suite of Skills qualifications in Travel and Tourism but also include merit and distinction criteria.

    The qualification includes an optional unit in Improving own Employability skills. This could be used with learners who are on a programme that encompasses a work placement.

    Learners also have the option of completing a substantial project in an area of Travel and Tourism. This will support the development of independent learning and research skills that are essential for further study.

    Rules of Combination

    Learners must achieve a total of 45 credits including the completion of 2 mandatory units from Group M and the remaining credits from optional units in Group O. All the optional units are at level 2 and include sector specific units and some generic units.
