Tourism 11

First Semester 

Tourism 11

Tourism 11 gives students an introduction to the tourism industry and offers students opportunities to develop the essential knowledge and skills needed to enter the tourism industry or pose-secondary tourism programs. Students develop their skills in communicating, problem solving, organizing and managing information, working with others and working independently, and using and adapting to new technology.

The course focuses on career planning and students apply and expand their learning in community or workplace settings through job shadowing, field trips, and work experience. Learning experiences have a strong applied focus with an emphasis on integrating, applying, and reinforcing learning in other courses.

In addition to the compulsory modules Fundamentals of Tourism and Career Exploration in Tourism, other modules may include Transportation, Hospitality, and Attractions; Tourism Attractions, Travel Trade, and Tourism Services; and Tourism Development and Design.


Additional course details and documents are available on the Nova Scotia Curriculum site’s Tourism 11.
