FLIGHT CENTRE LAUNCHES TRAVEL QUALIFICATION by Sarah Cornwell

THE FLIGHT Centre Travel Group has been recognised as an official travel education and training service provider by South Africa’s official training and education body, CATHSSETA, with a new General Certificate in Travel learning programme to upskill the company's own workforce and develop new external talent. Outside training will start this month.

Flight Centre Peopleworks General Manager, Sam van Gool, said: "It is critical to ensure that we as industry players actively contribute towards growing and maintaining a thriving and vibrant travel and tourism industry."

"Our vision is to provide outstanding training experiences for students and supply job-ready talent to the travel and tourism industry as part of our real-world education outlook."

The new programme includes practical and theoretical training. FCTG plans to add a leadership qualification at a later stage.
