We are pleased to announce the return of our Modern Apprenticeship programme to offer young people the opportunity to grow a prosperous career in the UK’s retail travel industry and at Barrhead Travel.

The unique programme, delivered in partnership with two education providers, Northern Training and Glasgow Clyde College, is bespoke to Barrhead Travel and offers a hybrid of college and workplace learning.

The 12-month Modern Apprenticeship qualification offers an exciting alternative to classroom style training with on-the-job learning and provides the foundation for a successful career in travel and tourism.  

We are one of the only travel groups to offer this type of qualification in the UK which blends formal college learning with workplace experience.

Apprenticeship opportunities range from head office positions including roles within marketing, HR and IT, to sales positions in all our retail locations.

Jacqueline Dobson, the President of Barrhead Travel, started her career as a trainee as well as more than half of Barrhead Travel’s senior management team, so we understand the benefits of a blended approach to education and on-the-job learning.

If you are interested in learning more about apprenticeship opportunities and starting a career in the UK’s retail travel industry, then we’d love to hear from you.
