Developing travel and tourism skills

As the travel and tourism industry in the United Arab Emirates continues to grow so too does the need for people with the necessary, industry-relevant skills.

Working with Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) gives organisations, including yours, the opportunity to gain recognition for their existing in-house qualifications and training programmes.

Offer more options in technical education to meet the need for a skilled and competent workforce. SQA travel and tourism qualifications include English, communication, cookery, hospitality and customer service.

Benefits for your organisation:

  • Practical and theoretical learning
  • Vocational training available
  • Taught in English
  • Includes development of core skills such as communication
  • Increased opportunities for staff to develop their skills
  • Improved quality assurance and internal processes
  • Improved staff morale and performance

Scottish Vocational Qualifications

There are no formal written exams with Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQs). People doing SVQs collect and submit evidence, usually from their work. SVQs prove that a person can do their job well, to recognised standards. SVQs are:

  • on the Scottish Credit Qualifications Framework (SCQF)
  • available at five levels of difficultly

There are SVQs for nearly all occupations including hospitality and tourism.

Develop your own qualifications

We work with you to develop and design qualifications specific to your organisation. These may be suitable if current qualifications do not meet your needs. The qualifications are:

  • credit-rated against international frameworks
  • owned by your organisation

More than 50 qualifications have been created to meet specific employer needs to date.

SQA has met our expectations in terms of support, building awareness and qualification development. I would endorse SQA to all prospective centres, if they are serious about delivering quality education.
