This chapter examines education development and training in Trinidad and Tobago. The twin-island republic is identified as a late entrant in the tourism and hospitality business, but the need for a well-trained human resource base was identified early. A master plan for tourism was drafted which identified education as an important component of tourism development. Model concepts such as “Getting Industry into Education” (GIE) and “Getting Education into Industry” (GEI) included a tourism awareness component and the development of industry standards, respectively. The author also examines tourism and hospitality programmes and training needs at the bachelor's and master's degree levels. The chapter concludes that a new model for tourism and hospitality education in Trinidad and Tobago has evolved in accordance with the Tourism Master Plan.
