The GTTP’s first program was started in the United Kingdom. Programs were added in Ireland, Hungary, Hong Kong and Canada. The focus of the GTTP then shifted to developing countries where tourism is vital to the economy.
The original programs received funding to develop their curricula, provide teacher training, and establish the GTTP office and Director. As they matured and their programs became part of the national education systems, the GTTP’s funding and focus shifted to the new members. The original programs took on the role of mentor to the still-developing programs. This mix of developed and new programs benefits teachers and students through exchanges, sharing of curricula, and teacher training provided by experienced teachers.
Brazil, China, Jamaica, Kenya, Russia and South Africa. They receive GTTP funding to develop their programs.
