Analysis of Tourism Education
In preparing students to gain professional and practical skills required by the tourism industry, tourism education plays a major role. Given that the tourism industry is a labour-intensive sector, it is undeniable that practical training is as important as theoretical training. In tourism education, practical training is necessary for students to find the opportunity to apply what they have learned into practice and to develop personal skills and abilities. It is aimed to reveal the importance of practical training in tourism education in this study. From students through semi-structured interviews, self-reports and discussions via social media, a qualitative research model was used to collect in-depth data. The multiple data were analyzed thematically.
The study group consisted of 20 senior students from Near East University, School of Tourism and Hotel Management. Practical training is an important part of tourism education programmes in which the students figure out their role as a potential employee in the real work as well as gain skills and abilities in the tourism industry. There has been little systematic attention paid to education for sustainability in tourism despite the close link between sustainability and tourism.
Two exceptions to this are the BEST Education Network and the Tourism Education Futures Initiative. This chapter introduces and provides an overview of EfS, links it to sustainability in tourism, reports on the outcomes of the BEST Education Network Think Tank in 2011, and provides a framework for understanding EfS in Tourism.
