HOGG Robinson sister company BTIUKis close to forming an agreement with colleges to launch its own business travel training programme in 2000.
The multiple has been looking at introducing its own training course for a number of months specifically for business travel agents because it has been unhappy with the level of skills many young people have gained while studying travel and training courses at a variety of colleges in the UK.
BTI chief executive David Radcliffe said: "We need newcomers to be trained in skills which reflect the changing business travel market. Some of the roles we are playing on behalf of the client are not traditional travel agency roles, such as account management. "We have come to the conclusion that we would be better doing a training course on our own."
Radcliffe said:"We are now looking at how we can work in harmony with one or two big educational establishments to put together a different business travel course to the ones currently on the market."
