A travel agent in Bearsden, Glasgow, has become the top scoring agent on ABTA’s Accredited Travel Professional scheme.
Stacey Butler of the The Co-operative Travel has accrued over 600 points by completing NVQ Levels two and three in travel and tourism, and NVQ Level two in Travel Money Services.
She also regularly completes the Co-operative Travel’s online training modules and is an avid reader of the trade press – all of which has helped her ATP points rocket.
She said: “I have had a real thirst for learning ever since I began a modern apprenticeship programme with The Co-operative Travel and Training for Travel as soon as I left school. I’m very grateful to my manager that I’m able to continue this vocational learning whenever I have a spare moment.
“I am a big fan of the e-learning modules, which are very informative and are a great way of learning about specialist holidays and destinations you haven’t visited. As I haven’t been to many destinations I am still confident that I can sell them with the knowledge I have picked up through my learning.”
ABTA education liaison executive Vicki Wolf said: “We are very impressed with Stacey’s achievement. ATP aims to encourage and raise standards in the industry and it’s great to know that in addition to Stacey’s career development, she also gains recognition from her peers through ATP.”
