NATIONAL TOURISM CAREER EXPO COMING UP
The National Tourism Career Expo (NTCE) will be taking place in Mafikeng between 28 to 30 September 2018.
ourism in South Africa plays a critical role both in employment and in raising the country’s GDP. However, historical factors have discouraged many students from pursuing a career in the sector. These include factors such as negative perceptions of the tourism field of study by learners who see it as an “easy” or “lazy” tertiary degree. Also, the fact that it is not offered as its own individual subject in high school impacts on how much exposure learners get with the sector and information about it.
This is where the NTCE strategically places itself, as it attempts to bridge the information gap between the industry, government, learners and educators. The NTCE is more than just an annual event, it is intense intervention into the historical realities of this neglected but promising sector.
