HNC Travel & Tourism Management students have undertaken two fantastic field trips recently.
On 23 February students visited the Apex London Bridge Hotel in conjunction with one of our charity partners, Springboard UK. The General Manager and HR Manager of the hotel gave an inspiring and engaging talk, explaining the various highlights of a career in the hospitality industry. Students were also given a ‘masterclass’ in cocktail making and were able to make their own mocktail versions of classic drinks such as mojitos. The students gave extremely positive feedback, thanking the Apex Hotel and Springboard UK for this excellent opportunity.
The group then headed to the Mediterranean to visit the vibrant Spanish tourist resort of Benidorm, a popular holiday destination for millions of holidaymakers each year. The students spent three nights in the resort to study the history of the destination and the hospitality provision on offer. Students visited local attractions such as Terra Natura Zoo and made contact with local resort representatives to research issues that will help them in their future course of study.
