Tenerife is a multicultural island receiving more than 3 million tourists per year, offering a professional net of companies working in the tourism market with more than 50 years experience. As a mature Tourism destination, Tenerife is the perfect field to have the first contact with the labour market surrounded by tourism experts. Easy flight connections around Europe keep us in contact with the main Europeans cities. Spain is leading the “Q” National Tourism Quality Programme established by the government, which ensures that any company holding this label gets the best standards on quality. This frame of work ensures the best practices for the students and future professionals.
TJT provides quality services as tutoring, follow-up, accommodation, certified Spanish courses, transfers and cultural activities. Our students enjoy internship periods in hotels and tourism companies between two to six months. The quality of the selected companies is the key for the success of the student experience: only four and five star hotels have agreements with us.

As part of year 1 we carry out in house salon days in order to gain in house hands on practical work experience to increase the learners skill set and confidence skills also. We also encourage students to seek work placements outside of learning hours but since the economical downturn most salons will not accept students on work placements unless they are qualified. This project will give the students the opportunity to work as therapists in professional establishments gaining the experience in order to gain confidence and secure employment at a later date. The students have achieved full certification in CIBTAC examinations in Beauty Therapy which is an internationally recognised examination board,they have qualified in FETAC QQI level 5 in Customer Service, communication and work experience and lastly they have qualified in professional skin care brands .
