Strategic Vision

At CTH we seek to provide Gold Standard qualifications for the Tourism, Hospitality, Travel and Culinary industries. It is our mission that our qualifications should be:

number-1-goldSuitable for Progression

CTH programmes seek wherever possible to offer candidates not only a direct pathway into their career but also a pathway to further, higher level study for those that seek it. Many CTH programmes therefore offer such pathways, ultimately leading to final year bachelor’s and master’s degrees with many respected British and international universities.

number-2-goldHigh Quality

At CTH, our core mission is to provide the highest standard of qualifications. CTH achieves this through robust monitoring supported by the industry, universities and the UK government regulator, Ofqual.

number-3-goldAcademically Robust

CTH continuously seeks to strengthen its relationships with leading employers in our sector. Only through this can we ensure that our programmes are up to date and relevant to the needs of careers available. Virgin Atlantic and Star Alliance, for example, partner with CTH on our Certificate qualifications while our management programmes are endorsed by a variety of key industry players.

number-4-goldHighly Relevant

CTH continuously seeks to build its partnerships with worldwide educational authorities and academic institutions. CTH is a member of the Federation of Awarding Bodies and liaises with universities and other awarding bodies.
