During the last decade, the hotel and hospitality industry in both the UK and globally has undergone an unprecedented period of growth; the industry requires graduates with Hotel Management training to prepare them for a career in the sector. Employability is at the heart of our programmes. As well as hospitality specific skills, the programmes have modules that embed transferable skills of innovation, dealing with unexpected events, resilience, personal initiative and responsibility, problem solving and creativity, reflective practice and the development of an enterprising mind-set. All staff teaching on the programmes have close links with industry, and many are former employees of hotels themselves. The course continuously evolves in accordance with feedback from industry. Programmes are available on a full-time and part-time basis. There are three intakes per year: September, January and April.
Year 1 - Level 4 (Cert HE, Dip HE & BA) • Business Skills for the International Hotel Industry (20 credits) • Marketing Essentials (20 credits) • Hospitality and Guest Services for the Hotel Industry (20 credits) • Food and Beverage Operations (20 credits) • Hotel Administration and Front Office Operations (20 credits) • Operating Hotel Facilities (20 credits). The course is delivered during mornings and students are provided with information as early as possible additional to help them better plan their studies and external commitments. All modules are compulsory.
Exams are not heavily used in the programmes because the assessment focus is on the rehearsal of activities typically undertaken in the hotel and hospitality environment. Assessment includes written assignments, reports and practical assessments that test knowledge, understanding and cognitive skills but with an emphasis on the development of practical and key (transferable) skills that mirror the skills that the students will require when they enter the workplace following completing of their respective courses. Coursework and practical tasks are set in a variety of formats. These include: • Practical in-class exercises (e.g. debate seminars) • Role play (e.g. mock interviews, customer focussed scenarios etc.) • Presentations • Learning Logs – either completed on placement or in practical in-house sessions • Research projects • Peer mentoring • Video critique • Essays • Reports • Work experience placement assessments.
