Summary

This level 3, 1 A-level equivalent programme, is designed to provide learners with the underpinning knowledge required to progress into the industry or into further education and training upon completion. Learners will undertake study of the key elements and practices involved in the hospitality and travel industry as well as maintaining up-to-date knowledge and understanding of ongoing developments both in the UK and overseas.

What do I need to join?

Learners will require 4 GCSEs grade 4 or above to include both English and maths in order to enrol on this programme of study.

How will I know how I am doing?

A variety of assessment methods will be used to measure your progress form your start point against your excepted outcomes and target grade. These may include practical tasks and assessments, written assignments, performance reviews, presentations, and discussions. Progress will be discussed with your Tutor and other delivery staff on the programme.

Maths & English

A key requirement for future progression and employment is a good understanding and application of knowledge and skills in both English and maths. Learners will be provided with the opportunity to continually develop their English and maths and feedback will be provided on progress made.

Employability

We aim to provide you with the skills required to be able to progress onto further study and training, or into employment upon completion of your programme of study. Key attributes required by employers are that individuals are enthusiastic, motivated, presentable (in some instances in company uniform), organised, articulate, can think "outside the box", are business-like and enterprising and that they have a "can-do attitude". We will work with you on these areas throughout the duration of your programme and your Tutor(s) will provide feedback on progress made as well as areas for development.

Work Experience

As part of their overall Programme of Study learners will be required to undertake a period of Work Placement related to the field of employment they wish to enter. Our Work Placement Team will assist learners in gaining a placement and ensure that you are on track to successfully complete, whilst liaising with your course tutors to ensure opportunities to practice necessary employability skills are available at College.

What can I do next?

Learners who successfully complete this programme may progress onto Level 3 year 2 or alternatively choose to gain employment or an apprenticeship in a related field.
