Become a Funder

Our valued industry partners

We need your help…

Is your company passionate about the future tourism workers in South Africa?  Do you feel you want to become involved with GTTP-SA and give in-kind and/or financial support to the youth of this country?

Your company can become a local or a national Partner of the GTTP-SA. It is worth doing because…

  • becoming a business partner with education is a way to give back to the communities in which you operate.
  • becoming a partner is also a way to interact with your peers in the industry.

This is how you can help to make a difference:

As industry partner, you can:
1. Give support to Tourism teachers by enabling access to information to enhance teaching.
2. Facilitate and participate in teacher training sessions – direct contact with industry is vital!
3. Facilitate industry visits for learners and teachers.
4. Exhibit at the National Tourism Careers Expo – this year in North West Province.
5. Financial support, e.g prize money, trophies etc.
6. Sponsorships  for accommodation and local and international travel (teachers and learners).
The GTTP-SA is a registered Non-Profit organisation, founded in 1996 and we will be celebration 22 years of being one of the best tourism education programmes in South Africa.

Partners provide real-time industry information to schools, and help ensure that learners are learning skills that will help them go from secondary school to entry-level jobs, or to further education and subsequent careers in Travel & Tourism. Both parties benefit. Learners are introduced to careers in the world’s fastest growing industry, and companies are helping address the skills shortage facing the industry.

Local and national partners provide access to their workplaces for teachers and learners, volunteer in classrooms, provide in-kind support (from transport for learners, to tickets to attractions, to hotel rooms for visiting teachers) and, if feasible, financial support.

To join at a local or national level, please contact the  GTTP-SA national Director, Elsabé Engelbrecht at:
