City of Liverpool College University Centre has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
This dynamic course is designed for students that are looking to step into the Travel and Tourism sector. Students are taught by industry experts that can help build their academic skills as well as their Travel and Tourism skills
The rationale for Foundation Degrees centres on the 'thinking practitioner' by linking theory and practice to produce effective management and operational skills. The delivery of the modules will reflect this.
The course is academic, broad based and is designed to provide students with an understanding of, and the ability to, apply fundamental theories and concepts of tourism, leisure and hospitality. Specialist modules give the course particular focus leading to the achievement of one of the two foundation degrees available.
The modules studied will include the following:
Year 1:- Professional Development 1, Personal and Academic Development, Consumer Behaviour, Management Functions. In addition to this, one specialist module will be completed each semester - Health, Safety and Law in a Hospitality Context, Food Production Management.
Year 2:- Professional Development 2, Research Methods, Marketing, Events Management. In addition to this, one specialist module will be completed each semester – International Food and Beverage Management, Revenue Management.
Work experience, placement or a job in a related industry are an essential part of the programme. It is feasible to utilise existing employment if the employer is in agreement. For students who are not employed in the industry, the onus is on the student to identify and acquire their own placement, however assistance will be given.
The programme is assessed through a variety of methods including: essays, formal reports, reflective critiques, individual presentations, a debate (Tourism and Leisure programme only -in year 1) and an exam (for the Tourism, Leisure and Hospitality programme only - in year 1).
Assessment of work-based learning is evidenced through the production of a self-reflective document, examining ‘critical incidents’ in depth. In a number of modules, the employer has 10% of the student’s mark and gives individual feedback on a number of competencies: self-management and development; managing tasks; communicating clearly and effectively; working with and relating to others; applying initiative in work problems; the ability to meet learning outcomes.
The programme allows 120 credits at each level.
