Better Tourism Academy

Are you (soon to be) a graduate of a tourism degree program and are you independent, proactive, ambitious and a self-starter, seize this opportunity!

Better Tourism Academy started in September 2017 with a challenging traineeship program. The trainees were trained in the operational duties of a tour operator and on top of that they gained new insights in sustainable development of the tourism sector. In October the trainees departed to work at the local destinations, enjoying the challenges in  a multi-cultural team.

”Better Places for people to live in,
Better Places to visit.”

“It is a diverse training and a good link to the tourism industry. Better Places is a nice and warm company, a good environment for motivated graduates. The training program of a month is a nice introduction to the position of trainee, be it in marketing or sales, before taking off to the DMC.”

You will learn about responsible travel, impact measurement, certification, but you will also learn how to write a good blog, create a vlog with simple tools, and create your own website. Attention is given to improvement of your personal effectiveness, besides a special training session about customer communication and developing itineraries. The training is extremely diverse and you will be able to discover your own skills and interests.
