We work with all of our apprentices to continually improve their English and maths skills. We use a combination or e-learning, online teaching and 1-2-1 coaching to ensure that all OTMA graduates attain at least a level 2 certification.
For those already at level 2 we provide additional stretch and challenge learning which is integrated into the main apprenticeship programme.
Individuals that successfully achieve the Customer Service Practitioner apprenticeship standard will be well placed to progress within the industry into leadership or specialist travel roles and onto a higher level of training or apprenticeship in management.
