Being an ABTA Partner has been really beneficial to the Centre for Tourism and Hospitality Management at Leeds Beckett University. Our students are able to access additional resources which help with their assessments and provide additional real-world learning. Opportunities for lecturers and senior staff to attend ABTA events, particularly those which are focused on qualifications, training and future employability is useful and the networking opportunities are highly valuable.

Being an ABTA Education Partner enables us to be at the heart of the tourism and travel ecosystem and engage in dynamic dialogue with our industry. Our research contributes to the knowledge base of tourism and our students are trained to for the future challenges. ABTA keeps us aware of current affairs and policies and brings us all together on a dynamic dialogue.
