Gauteng Travel Academy has introduced an interactive supplier programme which will have our learners engage with respected suppliers in the travel and tourism industry through presentations, site visits and supplier based practical assessments. GTA believes in going the extra mile for our learners and for the respected company that has sponsored the learnership. 

GTA embarked on their 3rd Educational which took place in the city of Durban and all of our students had a great time touring the beach front.




The students Educational took place on the 18th and 19th of August 2015, with our sponsor British Airways Comair whom has supported every educational so far! The students were shown the notorious slow lounge at the OR Tambo International Airport which is reserved for VIP's and experienced what it is like to indulge in first class travel...

We arrived at King Shaka International Airport and were accompanied by Hotty's Travel & Tours whom kindly assisted us with transfers throughout the educational.

Thank you Hotty's Travel & Tours for making this educational possible!

The students were driven by Hotty's Travel & Tours to City Lodge Hotel in the heart of Durban where we would be staying for the duration of the educational. City Lodge Hotel is located in the vicinity of South Beach which is one of South Africa's most famous beaches, a perfect location for a perfect hotel and ideal for the business traveller!

A big thank you to the City Lodge group for kindly hosting us as we enjoyed the warm breeze that Durban has to offer!
