NEWS | AHLEI introduces Hospitality and Tourism Management Program

The American Hotel & Lodging Educational Institute (AHLEI) has introduced a new high school curriculum, the Hospitality and Tourism Management Program (HTMP). This two-year programme introduces high school juniors and seniors to the hospitality and tourism industry.
The programme is delivered with graphic-rich textbooks and workbooks, and includes optional online coursework ideal for tech-savvy teens. The AHLEI worked with more than 60 industry leaders who served as subject matter experts to ensure that the program matches the need of hospitality employers across the world. In addition, high school educators added their insight into the features that would make the program attractive to state and district educational bodies—such as the alignment of content to the Common Core State Standards and correlation to the job-specific technical skills outlined in the Hospitality & Tourism Career Cluster. Throughout the programme, students receive information on key hospitality industry experts, hospitality and tourism history and traditions, green practices, diversity, and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) best practices. Dr Michelle Aldrich, High School Hospitality Teacher at Triumph High School in Cheyenne, Wyoming, called the new programme the best rewrite of curriculum she has seen in her last 12 years of teaching high school. “I had the opportunity to use the new curriculum this summer with a class of 9-12 grade students. They loved the colour, the new graphics, and the material covered is current and reflective of where the industry is headed,” said Aldrich. “The new curriculum does an excellent job of educating students about the history of the industry, introducing present day industry leaders, and reinforcing the global aspect and environmentally sound green practices all in each chapter,” she added.
