Tourism organisations work in partnership with National 5 Travel and Tourism pupils
Visit Scotland worked with partners and regional ambassadors on the Moray Speyside National 5 Travel and Tourism syllabus project, which has been celebrated at Milne’s High School – the lead school for the project.
As part of the project, six tourism ambassadors working locally, from a range of backgrounds, have been recruited and a series of films made focusing on different aspects of the industry which can be found on the DYW Moray Youtube channel. In addition, schools can now access up-to-date information about the tourism industry locally and further afield. These ambassadors will also support the curriculum going forward, for example by attending events and presentations in their local schools.
Earlier this year, staff from Visit Scotland and Moray Speyside Tourism worked in partnership with a group of S3 pupils at Milne’s High School, showing them the national tourism organisation’s adverts and inviting them to take part in a competition to create an advert for Visit Scotland. This project helped highlight and promote tourism as a positive career choice.
