23rd May 2017
The Year 12 Travel and Tourism students were joined by international students on our (pre-A level) Year 12 Foundation course for a trip to study tourism in Bristol. For the tourism students it was the 3rd in a series of trips to different destinations, the others being Dartmoor and Teignmouth, to enable them to gather evidence for a key coursework assignment where they investigate the appeal of a variety of UK tourist destinations.
For the Foundation students the Bristol trip was the latest in their programme of educational visits, where they learn about different aspects of UK life and culture.
Whilst in Bristol, the groups were privileged to receive a highly informative talk from Kathryn Davis, Head of Tourism at Destination Bristol, on Bristol’s tourist attractions and on how the city responds to some of the challenges faced by its tourism-related businesses.
The week previously, at the Princetown Visitor Centre on Dartmoor, the group had been treated to another high quality presentation and discussion, this time from Richard Drysdale, Visitor Services Manager, who has been extremely supportive and accommodating of our Travel and Tourism students in recent years. We thank him and his staff for their ever-friendly welcome.
