Tourism is one of the fastest growing industries in Ireland. A recent report by the Irish Hotels Federation (IHF) forecasts an additional forty thousand jobs in the tourism sector by 2021. In 2018, Tourism Ireland aims to grow overseas tourism revenue to €6 billion for the island of Ireland; and to grow visitor numbers to 10.8 million.

The purpose of this award (which was developed in collaboration with Fáilte Ireland) is to enable learners to achieve the relevant understanding, skills and competencies to work effectively as a Tourist Guide in the greater Dublin Region and surrounding area. It also provides learners with the necessary business skills needed to start their own tour guiding business.
