Visit Arran Travel and Tourism Session

4 Ayrshire schools interested in Travel and Tourism received a presentation from VisitArran’s CEO Sheila Gilmore in October. Schools heard about VisitArran, the Arran Trust and Arran’s ambition to become a UNESCO Global Geopark. Following the presentation, there was opportunity to ask questions about job opportunities, attractions, and visitor management. 

The session is just one of several that VisitArran has offered to students and young people. “It was a pleasure to be asked to do this. Hopefully the schools found it beneficial, and it supported their studies. If even one young person is inspired to pursue a career within the tourism industry, that’s a bonus.  My thanks to the Emma and Jenna from the Chamber and to the teaching staff for the invitation”.
