Since 2010, tourism has been the fastest growing sector in the UK in terms of employment. Revenue from inbound tourism has increased by 30% since 2008, making the industry the UK’s fifth largest export earner. Domestic tourism has also grown significantly and Britain is forecast to have a tourism industry worth over £257 billion by 2025 (VisitBritain.org.uk). Tourism is Blackpool’s main industry and accounts for 24,000 full time equivalent jobs, generating £1.295b within the local economy (Blackpool.gov.uk) in 2012-13. This programme will give you a strong foundation in key business disciplines that are taught alongside, and so support, tourism industry specific modules. Unique features of the programme include: • a close involvement with employers through work based learning, visiting speakers, industry visits and contextualised assessments; • modules that are designed with a business focus as well as contemporary tourism specific ones • small classes where debate can flourish;
