This work based research project will provide you with the opportunity to use your skills working for a tourism operator of your choice. Once you have completed your work placement you will be able to share your experience and complete your qualification by presenting a well researched document showcasing the theoretical and applied skills you have developed over the past year.

Of course we will be here to support you throughout the project, offering advice, clarification and encouragement. We will do this through classes on a Wednesday throughout the semester, site visits, email and tutorial sessions. The Project is made up of the following components (all of which must be completed):

Casestudy 40%
Workplacement 40%
Presentation 15%
CV 5%
