Teaching Travel and Tourism 14+ has been written in response to a perceived need in initial teacher training to address the pedagogy of vocational programmes in the field as a vocational subject. It, therefore, focuses on theoretical approaches to teaching, learning and assessment and how they can inform the way in which we plan and deliver programmes of Travel and Tourism studies. It examines how we teach programmes related to preparation for working in the industry, programmes such as the National Diplomas, specific professional qualifications and, of course, the new 14-19 Diplomas. It is intended to inform and stimulate to further study all likely to be involved in the development and delivery of such programmes. This could include, those engaged in initial teacher training whether experienced practitioners or post-graduate students; subject mentors now required to support new teachers; experienced teachers unfamiliar with the subject who may be required to teach on these programmes and also administrators needing to familiarise themselves with the nature, content and delivery of the subject as an innovation to the curriculum. Therefore, although initially it examines the nature of the industry and raises discussion of issues pertinent to the delivery of related vocational programmes, it is essentially a useful resource book, with a wealth of information about the exciting curriculum opportunities that the subject presents. Through interactive exercises, case studies and exemplar resources it provides the reader with a foundation of usable activities to develop a variety of teaching and learning strategies which will enhance their delivery of the Travel and Tourism curriculum.
