Tourism Management - BA Hons (Lancaster University)

B&FC

Qualification Obtained: Tourism Management

Course Overview

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. The report estimates that the industry will require an additional 660,200 people trained at management and supervisory level by 2020 if it is to fulfil its potential.

It is important for B&FC to have an H.E. offer in Tourism Management, in order to support the local economy and to provide opportunities to develop managerial skills for the people of Blackpool and the Fylde Coast.  This programme gives you a strong foundation in key business disciplines that are taught alongside, and support, tourism industry specific modules.

Unique features of the programme include

·         a close involvement with employers through work based learning, visiting speakers, industry visits and contextualised assessments;

·         modules that are designed with a business focus as well as contemporary tourism specific ones;

·         small classes where debate can flourish;
