New Tour Guiding course launched by Stillorgan College

Tourism is one of the fastest growing industries in Ireland. A recent report by the Irish Hotels Federation (IHF) forecasts an additional 40,000 jobs in the tourism sector by 2021. In 2018, Tourism Ireland aims to grow overseas tourism revenue to €6 billion for the island of Ireland; and to grow visitor numbers to 10.8 million.

The purpose of this award (which was developed in collaboration with Fáilte Ireland) is to enable learners to acquire the relevant knowledge, skills and competencies to work effectively as a Tourist Guide in the greater Dublin Region and surrounding area. It also provides learners with the necessary business skills needed to start their own tour guiding business.

On successful completion of the course students will be able to:

• Plan and implement themed tour itineraries in Dublin and the surrounding areas.
• Demonstrate an understanding and knowledge of Irish cultural and heritage in Dublin and surrounding areas.
• Develop a range of communication, information and customer care skills.
• Become confident in using digital media skills to promote tourism products and services to target potential customers.
• Manage and conduct tours on as a self-employed guide or work for an incoming tour operator.
• Implement best safety and environmental practices.
• Implement tour management skills and techniques.
