About Tourism & Hospitality Courses


After partnering up with the Confederation of Tourism and Hospitality, ELA is happy to offer the globally recognised professional qualifications for Tourism and Hospitality Industry.

ELA is the only CTH approved teaching centre in Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland.

Over the last three decades, CTH has developed programmes aimed at globally enhancing careers in the hospitality, travel and tourism fields. Through CTH programmes, with this globally recognised certification, thousands of employees in the sector will be able to make their way towards the higher ranks of their profession. The Hospitality and Tourism industry incorporates a wide range of catering, entertainment and accommodation services, such as holiday resorts, inns, and hotels, so these programmes are relevant to many people employed in the sector.

The programmes have been endorsed by many industry leading businesses and corporations such as The Institute of Hospitality, The Guild of Travel Management Companies, Park Hyatt Paris-Vendome, Le Meridian Hotels, Hilton Hotel Singapore, Dhaka Sheraton Towers, InterContinental Hotel Group, InterContinental London Park Lane, Premier Inn, Radisson Edwardian Hotel, Virgin Atlantic Airways, Star Alliance, Gordon Ramsay Holdings & Tante Marie, Hotel Solutions Partnership Switzerland and many more.

ELA is pleased to offer Home and International students a range of courses relevant to their profession and career stage and various study options: intensive, full-time and part-time. Every Certificate Programme is divided into Units. For example, on short career skills courses students can choose to enrol for the entire qualification or undertake individual unit(s). The former will grant them an overarching certificate, the latter will result in a unit award. Despite the substantial difference in the duration of these options, they are both globally recognised qualifications.

Classes will be available on a part-time or full-time basis, with a minimum of 5 students per group. According to their goals and current position, students can choose the most suitable course, or courses, from the following: Career Skills, Foundation Programmes and Management Qualifications.

Students who successfully finish their CTH Foundation course at ELA, will have an opportunity to study a Tourism & Hospitality Undergraduate Degree at one of the universities accepting the CTH Foundation programmes in the UK or worldwide such as Bournemouth University, BPP University, Buckinghamshire New University, Coventry University College, Glasgow Caledonian University, St Mary’s University and many more, please check the full list of universities here.

  • It's a great pleasure to be in touch with you again! I'll surely recommend ELA to friends and colleagues interested in attending general or professional English courses as your Legal English course has given me useful skills for my job. Hope to be soon in Edinburgh again!

  • I was already studying at ELA before starting attended the Business English course. Then, as I was happy to study there, I decided to take this course in order to improve my knowledge in this area as it is my domain of studying in France. What I found the most useful was that we were in a little group of study. Then, I found that my time there was really efficient. My favorite teaching method was when I had to talk in front of everyone. It forced me to use the skills I got previously. I enjoyed to be fully immersed in a British culture. The best advice I could give is not to be afraid to be criticized.
