Course summary

Blackpool and the Fylde College remains committed to providing a highly responsive curriculum that is employment and future-focused and will enable you to develop the essential knowledge and skills that will prepare you for future success in work and life. Since 2010, tourism has been the fastest growing sector in the UK in terms of employment. Revenue from inbound tourism has increased by 30% since 2008, making the industry the UK’s fifth largest export earner. Domestic tourism has also grown significantly and Britain is forecast to have a tourism industry worth over £257 billion by 2025 (VisitBritain.org.uk). Tourism is Blackpool’s main industry and accounts for 24,000 full time equivalent jobs, generating £1.295b within the local economy (Blackpool.gov.uk) in 2012-13. People 1st, in their State of the Nation Report 2013, found that management and leadership skills, essential within this industry, are generally accepted to be poor in the sector. Placing emphasis on these skills in the revised programme, will address this need.
