Unit 2 The Business of Travel & Tourism

Hi Year 12

The Unit 2 specification can be found here

for P2 we are going to research TWO businesses and create a presentation to deliver to year 12 students who start in Travel and Tourism in term six.

What the exam board are looking for:

For P2, learners should describe the organisational and financial characteristics of two different types of travel and tourism organisations with different structures. For example, they could select a medium national private limited company involved in outbound tourism and a local partnership involved in domestic tourism. All items of range must be included in the description. If the two organisations selected do not offer the opportunity to cover all the items of range, these items can be covered through other organisations and for each you will describe the organisational structure and financial characteristics.

I have identified TWO businesses to research but you do not have to use these if you have contacts in other contrasting businesses.
