GTTP’s reach extends to all corners of the globe, providing young people with the help they require to go on to carve out successful futures within the travel and tourism sector.

The first programme was started in the United Kingdom in 1986 and programmes were soon added in Ireland, Hungary, Hong Kong and Canada.

Now, 15 countries belong to the GTTP family, with the USA an affiliate member. Those countries are Brazil, Canada, China, France, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Ireland, Jamaica, Kenya, New Zealand, Russia, South Africa, Tanzania and the UK.

Each member country, supported by GTTP, has its own approach to teaching travel tourism while working with education ministries to ensure compliance with national standards.
