Become a Partner
Your company can become a local, a national or a Global Partner of the GTTP. It is worth doing:
- Becoming a business partner with education is a way to give back to the communities in which you operate.
- Becoming a partner is also a way to interact with your peers in the industry.
Partners provide real-time industry information to schools, and help ensure that students are learning skills that will help them go from secondary school to entry-level jobs, or to further education and subsequent careers in Travel & Tourism. Both parties benefit. Students are introduced to careers in the world’s fastest growing industry, and companies are helping address the skills shortage facing the industry.
Local and national partners provide access to their workplaces for teachers and students, volunteer in classrooms, provide in-kind support (from bus passes for students, to tickets to attractions, to hotel rooms for visiting teachers) and, if feasible, financial support. To join at a local or national level, please contact the GTTP Country Director listed under your country on our Country Members page.
Global Partners make a financial contribution to the GTTP, are represented on the Advisory Board, and provide strategic guidance to the GTTP. The GTTP Advisory Board allocates its funding among the GTTP’s current programs and new initiatives, meets by telephone conference calls four times a year, and face-to-face each November when the Board members meet students and teachers at Amadeus’ Corporate center in Nice. If you are interested in becoming a Global Partner, along with Amadeus, American Express, Hertz, HRG, Lufthansa, Starwood and the WTTC, please contact Dr. Nancy Needham, Executive Director, GTTP and President, Global Initiatives, Inc. or any member of the GTTP Advisory Board.
