Tourism Essentials are the essential employability skills for entry-level and front line workers in tourism. They are the skills, attitudes, and behaviours that employers expect. Workers who have these skills are often given opportunities to advance because they are able to adjust to new and ever-changing workplace conditions, and strive to gain further knowledge and skills.

┬áThe skills are generic, which means that they apply to all types of jobs, and are transferable. They are building blocks towards technical or job-specific skills. These abilities are needed at any job level, in any organization, in any industry, and in all aspects of people’s lives. They are generally referred to as ‘transferable skills.’

Tourism Essentials will get you started in a career in tourism that can lead to many further opportunities.
