  • Course Overview

    This course is a VET delivered to secondary school students (previously VETiS) course and can only be completed as part of your VCE or VCAL program.

    The tourism industry is an ever changing and exciting industry to work in. Career prospects can include selling dream holidays to customers as a travel agent, working for an airline or cruise company, and guiding Australian or overseas tours.

    Holmesglen has a hands-on approach to learning about tourism. You will study in a simulated travel office environment using the latest tourism technology. Throughout the course the emphasis is on developing knowledge of the tourism industry, including Australian and international tourist destinations, travel agency operations and promoting attractions. There will also be several local tourism based excursions.

    A feature of the course is the optional trip to the Gold Coast to explore the tourism industry in Queensland and the operations of a theme park.

    Please note that due to changes to the SIT training package the VCAA will review courses and there may be changes to the detail of this program.
