It’s a multi-disciplinary industry centred round the seaside town of Cleethorpes and beyond. Incorporating coast and countryside.
This industry is eager to employ qualified individuals that can demonstrate a capacity for management. This Foundation Degree has been developed through consultation with local, national and international employers and has been specifically designed with the needs of the local and national industry in mind. The programme focuses on developing practical skills that will enable students to achieve both career goals and personal goals in particular the opportunity to progress to the BA Tourism and Business Management Top Up degree at UCG.

The aims of the programme are to enable the students to enter the dynamic and ever growing events industry, equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge, at management level. The team have looked at the major issues and changes that have impacted upon the events industry, especially within the UK but at an international level as well. We have developed close links with the NELC’s tourism and events team, and this is reflected within the development of the programme, along with many tourism-based organisations locally and internationally. These links will be utilised through guest lectures and other opportunities locally.
