University Centre Grimsby has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
This fast growing tourism 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 tourism 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 tourism 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 tourism 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. However, the issues and changes affecting the local resort of Cleethorpes and the rural environment are replicated across the tourism industry both in the UK and abroad. These links will be utilised through guest lectures and other opportunities locally.
Students will gain a knowledge and critical understanding of the well-established principles of Business Management within a Tourism and Business context including the concepts and principles needed in the workplace at management level.
In this programme students will develop the skills that future tourism managers will need to develop their own businesses or organisations that they work for including digital-marketing, financial management, tourism planning and regeneration seaside, coastal and rural tourism management special interest tourism and how this relates to the modern tourism industry locally, nationally and internationally.
The assessment is a mixture of practical and academic work which includes individual or group reports, essays or individual or group presentations amongst other methods.
