Pupils thinking of a career in tourism, or simply studying its role in the Scottish economy, can now acquire two interactive CD-Roms on the industry.

The first, Talkabout Scotland, provides information, video footage and exercises linked to curriculum subjects such as economics, maths, geography and social studies, and uses interactive case studies to explore Scottish culture, heritage and the environment. Details from John Brinkins, Scottish Enterprise, tel: 0141 248 2700.

The second, Welcome Host Xtra, is designed for schools signed up for the Welcome Host for Schools customer service training programme. It simulates a variety of customer care and communication issues, including "How to handle disgruntled customers''. Commissioned by Ayrshire Education Business Partnership (EBP). Schools interested in the Welcome Host training, should contact their local EBP or local enterprise company.
