This module is designed to help students work as professional practitioners in the hospitality and tourism industries and to allow students to apply knowledge gained during their degree within tourism and hospitality career paths.
The module will provide an opportunity for students to initiate continuous profesional development activities. Students will develop techniques (e.g. performance profiling and reflective practice) to help them identify their own development needs for this module and to facilitate continued professional development post-graduation. In order to provide students with a meaningful experience and setting in which to develop such techniques, students’ will complete a professional placement and/or progress towards (or actually attain) tourism and hospitality qualifications. During these placements and when obtaining these qualifications, students will apply tourism and hospitality knowledge gained elsewhere during their degree.
