Hospitality, leisure, travel & tourism: The sector skills council for hospitality, leisure, travel and tourism is people 1st
People1st is responsible for the Hospitality, Leisure, Travel & Tourism sector. This covers almost 2 million people (1,887,800) working across 14 main industries. Many of these industries overlap and certain distinct areas of work fall more broadly within other industries. The events industry, for example, is often found within hotels (such as a wedding planner employed in a hotel) or holiday parks (where evening entertainment is commonly provided). In addition, many of the core occupations in the hospitality, leisure, travel & tourism sector are common to all the main industries. For example, whilst the primary aim of visitor attractions such as Alton Towers is to offer theme park attractions to visitors, they also have places to eat and drink meaning that catering staff are important to this industry.
