Course summary

**Though COVID has hit the global tourism industry hard it is expected to bounce back in 2021, and the expectation is that by 2022 it will be back to pre-pandemic. According to Visit Britain, "Britain will have a tourism industry worth over £257 billion by 2025 – just under 10% of UK GDP and supporting almost 3.8 million jobs." The tourism industry is one of the most exciting and dynamic industries not just in the UK, but worldwide too.**The industry is of vital importance to the local North East Lincolnshire economy, with visitor numbers of five million, generating over £200 million to the local economy. It’s a multi-disciplinary industry, centred round the seaside town of Cleethorpes and beyond, incorporating coast and countryside.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, both 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 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.This course is primarily designed for face-to-face learning, with attendance during lessons for the specified hours within the validation document. However, there may be periods of study where the government advises TEC Partnership that it is not safe to open campuses, or there is limited access due to social distancing measures. If the campus is closed, TEC Partnership will deliver your sessions online and offer you the necessary support and resources remotely. If there is limited access due to social distancing measures a blended model will be adopted, with some lessons taking place in small groups and others using online sessions and support.
