CASTT is a professional association that delivers tourism and hospitality education to teachers across public, Catholic and independent schools in South Australia and the Northern Territory.
We deliver professional learning that brings like-minded people together at conferences, workshops, seminars and famils to country regions across SA. Highlights for 2010 include the conference held at Adelaide Zoo, which focused on sustainable tourism, famils to both Goolwa and the Barossa Valley, and two workshops on the implementation of SACE Tourism.
Next year will begin with a connector dinner in North Adelaide in March and the annual conference is in May. We will see further expansion of regional networks as CASTT famils venture to Yorke Peninsula and the Flinders Ranges. A bank of learning materials on Stage 2 SACE Tourism is available on CD, contact susan.melhuish @ gihs.sa.edu.au
Our executive is comprised of 10 volunteer tourism and hospitality teachers whose high quality teacher training has been recognised through the SA Tourism Awards. CASTT provides a vehicle for tourism/hospitality educators to establish dialogue with industry, post-secondary school educators and government bodies. www. castt.com
