Enrolment Type
This Course Meets The Needs Of The Region By
West Yorkshire boasts a vibrant tourism industry, attracting millions of visitors annually. Travel and tourism courses play a crucial role in equipping individuals with the skills needed to thrive in this sector, directly addressing local skill needs in several ways. Skills such as customer handling, team-working, time management, computer literacy and IT skills have been identified as lacking in our region. As a curriculum, we embed this into our teaching, learning and assesement.
Trips And Visits
Nestled within a UNESCO World Heritage Site, our Travel & Tourism course thrives on the vibrant energy of tourism that surrounds us. We don't just read about destinations; we experience them first hand through active exploration. From behind-the-scenes tours of local hotels and travel companies to immersive visits to iconic attractions like Blackpool and Flamingo Land, we delve into the heart of tourism. Our adventures extend beyond the bustling cityscapes, inviting us to explore the serene beauty of the Yorkshire Dales and the dynamic capital of London. Every visit becomes a living lesson, enriching our understanding of the travel industry and the world around us.
Is There Anything Else I Need To Know
We assess learning in ways that mirror the real world of travel. Instead of traditional exams, you'll craft training manuals, impactful reports, persuasive presentations, and engaging role-plays. These assesments immerse you in practical skills valued by industry professionals, ensuring you graduate prepared to hit the ground running.
Former Students of our recent course graduates went on to get the role of Operations Manager for Corporate Travel Management.
