The GTHI is one of the few institutions that in the country offers specialised training in tourism. The school, which is run by the Dept. of Tourism & Culture, is to be upgraded into a National Tourism Training Institute (NTTI).

The Gambia National Tourism Training Institute was established in 1980 with support from the World Bank and the German Agency for Technical Cooperation. The learning centre initially offered training for new entrants to the hotel industry in 4 fields: house keeping, front office duties,  cooking and restaurant. The school has over the years provided skills training for more than 4,000 students many of whom are still working in the hotel industry and some beyond it.

The school offers various courses including hospitality management leading to the awarding of professional management certificates and diplomas.

The GTHI is affiliated with the Organisation for Tourism and Hospitality Management and the London International College.
