Confederation of Tourism and Hospitality (UK)

Travel, tourism and hospitality are some of the world’s largest industries. It has been estimated by the World Tourism Organisation that around one job in ten now depends on this fast growing sector. These travellers expect high standards of service and facilities and it is only through organised and structured training that the industry can meet these expectations.

The Confederation of Tourism & Hospitality was established in 1982 to provide recognised standards of management training appropriate to the needs of the hotel and travel industries, via its syllabi, examinations and awards. CTH achieves this through robust monitoring supported by industry, universities and the UK government regulator, Ofqual. CTH is a member of the Federation of Awarding Bodies.

GTMC, Virgin Atlantic, and Star Alliance work with CTH on its Professional Skills Programmes while its Management Programmes are endorsed by the Institute of Hospitality and lead to final year undergraduate and Masters degrees with many British and international universities.

Those studying for the examinations of the Confederation are offered a structured learning process, encompassing both the theoretical and practical aspects of the industry, integrating the various subjects, together with a clearly defined pattern of career development through progressive grades of membership.
Students can therefore be confident that gaining a CTH qualification is an excellent start to a promising career with truly global opportunities.

Boston Business School partnered CTH in May 2005 to deliver Certificates, Diplomas and Advanced Diplomas related to hotel, tourism and casino management.
