Travel & Tourism Courses at South Downs Campus

Welcome to the exciting world of Travel and Tourism. These tasks will give you an introduction to tourism, both in the UK and overseas. They will show you more about the industry you will be working within and hopefully inspire you for your future!

As part of your time with us at HSDC, we always strive to get you industry-ready. Part of this requires the wearing of a uniform to industry standards, along with suitable grooming. More details will be given to you at enrolment and you will be expected to wear your uniform on set days during the week and at any assessments that require it.

Please email your completed work to your lecturers listed below. Please also upload photos of your work to Facebook or Instagram and tag HSDC, so we can share and comment on your work. This will allow you to see what your future classmates have been up to!

Did you know? The Travel and Tourism industry is such a large and diverse industry that there is truly something for everyone.

Create a ‘mood board’ of what tourism means to you. Your mood board can be a display made up of images, text and samples of objects that show your interest in, and ideas about, tourism. This can include anything that you know about or have experienced in travel and tourism, any places you would love to visit, pictures from your holidays or trips, souvenirs, jobs you are interested in etc…basically, anything that you want to add that links to tourism in your mind. It can be completed electronically, using sites such as Pinterest, or it can be created on paper.

Imagine yourself in five years’ time. Think about where you want to be. What job will you be doing? Where will you be living? Who will you be with? Describe yourself in the future in writing.

The teaching and support was really great, the quality was really great, all the teachers really care about your education as well as your wellbeing, they take everything into consideration and they’re great.

Katie Whittingham, A Level student

I overcame a couple of barriers by working really hard to get the top grades. My experience was really good, with the course and the lecturers, the residentials and activities, together it was all really good. I had really great teaching support, I could always go to the lecturers and speak to them if I needed to.

There are great teachers here. This college has felt more like a university than a school, and it’s definitely lived up to that more grown-up feel.
