- Level 2 Certificate in Travel and Tourism

Having a language like French, German, Italian or Spanish, or a history qualification can also be useful for this type of role.
You may need:
- 2 or more GCSEs at grades 9 to 3 (A* to D), or equivalent, for a level 2 course
- 4 or 5 GCSEs at grades 9 to 4 (A* to C), or equivalent, for a level 3 course
