The Giles Business Travel Academy is now in full swing with the intake of 7 students completing their fourth week. The Giles Business Travel Academy is the first and only educational establishment of its kind offering a unique grounding in the fundamentals of business travel to its students. The Academy is situated at the state of the art learning facility, the Fountain, which provides the perfect space for thinking and learning with the right level of technology to support our students.
Students have been focusing on the foundations of Business Travel including airport codes, airline designators, phonetic alphabet and also a detailed geography module exploring key business destinations around the world. A real highlight for them last week was the chance to meet with their Mentors from Giles Travel who provide them with the right guidance and are expertise they need. ‘’The Giles Business Travel Academy is amazing and very enjoyable. The tutors are excellent and very supportive. The Academy is the next big thing’’ said Adam Khawaja, Academy student.
Various suppliers have also supported the Academy by organising educational visits for the students. Emirates and Hilton have been the first to organise trips for the students to learn more about these top brands. Another student, Simab Shabir explains, ‘’finally I have been given the opportunity to get an insight of the Business Travel Industry thanks to the Giles Business Travel Academy! Gary, Jacqui and the Giles Team have been very welcoming and supportive.’’
The course is off to a flying start and we’re really happy with the progress the students are making.
