Travel Counsellors launches graduate programme with £10,000 scholarships

The programme strives to support and foster young and new-to-travel entrepreneurs, with up to 10 graduates offered places to begin their careers as early as July 2024.

Candidates have been invited to submit a business plan, with successful applicants taking place in a pitch session in front of industry experts in May.

The lucky applicants selected for the scholarship will take part in a six-month training and onboarding programme, 10 days of virtual classroom lessons, six months of ongoing training from Travel Counsellors' expert training team, a personal mentor, a years' membership to both CLIA and ITT, and access to the Phenix digital platform.

Matt Harding, Travel Counsellors' director of franchise sales, said the platform was "thrilled" to launch its latest endeavour, "which supports young, ambitious entrepreneurs looking to set up their own travel business and provide unparalleled travel experiences for customers."

Applications are now open, with the submission deadline set for April 30th, 2024.
