Article by Carlene Harlock – Angliss Travel Traineeship Coordinator
Did you know that the Angliss Travel department also provides training for trainees travel agents who are completing the Certificate III in Travel while working?
A traineeship is similar to an apprenticeship and is established when an employer contacts WAI, asking us to provide training for a new employee who does not have a travel industry qualification. The trainee undertakes training and assessment tasks through Moodle and is also assessed when visited in the workplace by a WAI trainer.
As a full time student, the Certificate III in Travel is completed in six months. Trainee travel agents commit a few hours per week to their study and usually complete the qualification in 18-24 months.
WAI has trainees working in agencies throughout Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland.
Occasionally, trainees may contribute to the Angliss Travel & Tourism blog so that students are able to learn about their experiences working in the industry.
Next week there will be a great post from a recent graduate.
