Minimum Requirements


The Giles Business Travel Academy want’s to be able to offer our fantastic, unique course to as many interested individuals as possible.

Our minimum admissions requirements are set with this in mind; we are more interested in your thirst to break into this outstanding industry than your long list of previous academic achievements.

That being said, we do have some criteria that we have to look for to help ensure that you ‘ll be successful on the course:

  • Ability to clearly communicate, both verbally and written
  • At least a basic level of numeracy
  • Enthusiastic about building a career in the Business Travel industry
  • 18 years old or over

Selection Process


The selection process for the Giles Business Travel Academy is a series of stages designed to ensure that you’ll not only be capable of completing the course, but that you understand what you’ll be getting out of it and the opportunities that it will provide.

During the application process, you must be able to demonstrate the minimum requirements as shown above, along with your ability to work in a team, the drive to be self-motivated and the capability to approach the course in a mature and business-like fashion.

The application and selection process follows this format:

1) Apply using our online application form – this is reviewed by our panel

2) If successful you will be invited to a half day session at the academy covering:

  • Brief overview and introduction of the course
  • Group activity to demonstrate interpersonal and team working skills
  • Interview with the panel to discuss the course

In this way, we will be able to ensure your eligibility and suitability for the course.
