Tourism education is fast growing across most tourism receiving countries in the developed and developing world. Traditions in this area have seen models of tourism education transplanted from, generally, a developed country context to that of countries in varying stages of development, frequently in an uncritical and unplanned manner. This paper aims to provide a framework whereby the best of a national case study in tourism education (here based on the UK) can be translated in a critical and sensitive manner, elsewhere The context of the research upon which this paper reports was a trans-national study which aimed to draw lessons from the UK experience for application elsewhere. The paper is based on a field study of tourism education in the UK and reports the findings in a manner that can have transfer value elsewhere. The paper concludes with a number of key questions that can be extrapolated to other contexts from the process of lesson drawing.
