Assessment method

Lectures and seminars are delivered by industry specialist staff with current and direct experience from all disciplines of the travel, tourism and aviation sectors. You acquire appropriate background knowledge and develop broader academic skills, with emphasis on a balance of the theoretical requirements and aspects of the sectors and how they can be developed in practical sector settings. You have support from a range of employers particularly with guest lecturers from leaders in their field from airlines, airports, visitor attractions, hoteliers, travel agents and tour operators. This is invaluable to you to be able to apply theory to industry practice and give you a thirst for further knowledge and raised aspirations. Work based learning modules include work placements which can be used as case studies to develop your industry knowledge and continue to develop and support your achievement. The knowledge and skills developed through the course are assessed in a variety of ways, using both in-course and end assessments. Methods include reports, essays, projects, case studies, examination, individual or group presentation, group activity and a personal development portfolio. The business related modules will have a travel, tourism or aviation focus and are contextualised to enable learners to focus on their strengths.
