Despite recent setbacks, the Travel and Tourism industry continues to grow at a rapid pace. The last ten years have seen a huge increase in the amount of travel undertaken by individuals for both leisure and business purposes. Significantly, the growth of budget airlines has contributed to an expansion in the short-break market. This has led to a growth of regional airports in the UK and across Europe and a rise in the number of new hospitality enterprises including health spas and boutique hotels. This rapid expansion has led to huge demand for a more flexibly-skilled workforce.
