The Confederation of Tourism and Hospitality (CTH) – Level 3 Diploma in Communication and Research Skills QCF

Awarding Organisation: The Confederation of Tourism and Hospitality (CTH)

The course aims to raise the candidates’ use of English to beyond Upper Intermediate level (CEFR – Independent User – Level B2), giving candidates additional confidence in their studies.

The CTH English Language courses are designed specifically for the International Hospitality and Tourism industries and the content spans use of English relevant to all hotel departments and restaurant staff, tour operators, resort representatives and travel agents. However, as the aim of the qualifications and the subsequent CTH Diplomas is to prepare for a career in management in hospitality and tourism, all candidates will benefit from exposure to matters outside their specific field of interest.
