 Teaching and Learning Activities    

The module tutor(s) will aim to combine lectures with tutorial activities. This environment will provide opportunities for the student to understand the course material through case study and text and to apply it in a practical way. The intent is to facilitate interactive class activities, and discussion about the significant role of research in a global and local business environment. 

2.3       Teaching Ethos

The college’s approach towards teaching and learning is simple and effective. The main aim of UKCBC is to assist learners in maximising their potential by ensuring that they are taught clearly and effectively. This will enable students to engage in the learning environment and promote success in both their academic studies and subsequent career. 

2.3.1 Methods of Delivery: 

LECTURES:

These will be developed around the key concepts as mentioned in the indicative course content and will use a range of live examples and cases from business practice to demonstrate the application of theoretical concepts. This method is primarily used to identify and explain key aspects of the subject so that learners can utilise their private study time more effectively. 

SEMINARS:

These are in addition to the lectures. The seminars are designed to give learners the opportunity to test their understanding of the material covered in the lectures and private study with the help of reference books. This methodology usually carries a set of questions identified in advance. Seminars are interactive sessions led by the learners. This method of study gives the learner an excellent opportunity to clarify any points of difficulty with the tutor and simultaneously develop their oral communication skills. 

CASE STUDIES: An important learning methodology is the extensive use of case studies. They enable learners to apply the concepts that they learn in their subjects. The learners have to study the case, analyse the facts presented and arrive at conclusions and recommendations. This assists in the assessment of the learner’s ability to apply to the real world the tools and techniques of analysis which they have learnt. The case study serves as a supplement to the theoretical knowledge imparted through the course work. 

Plagiarism:

Any act of plagiarism will be seriously dealt with according to the colleges and awarding bodies’ regulations. In this context the definition and scope of plagiarism are presented below:

Plagiarism is presenting someone’s work as your own. It includes copying information directly from the web or books without referencing the material; submitting joint coursework as an individual effort; copying another student’s coursework; stealing coursework form another student and submitting it as your own work. Suspected plagiarism will be investigated and if found to have occurred will be dealt with according to the college procedure. (For further details please refer to the plagiarism policy and the student code of conduct.)  

Assessment:

The module will be assessed meeting all the LO as specified by the awarding body, Pearson BTEC.

Please read the instructions carefully while addressing the tasks specified.

LO1. Understand the history and structure of the travel and tourism sector  

TASK 1 (LO1, AC1.1, 1.2, M1, M2, M3, D1, D2, D3)

Eco-consultant is recruiting tour guide officers, project officer and executive officers for TUI Group.  You have been shortlisted and invited to an interview for the position of project officer.  A key part of the selection criteria is to demonstrate a good understanding of the history and structure of the travel and tourism sector. You will be making a poster presentation on the historical developments in the travel and tourism sector. Your poster should include a timeline chart showing key historical developments. You should also create a leaflet to explain the structure of the travel and tourism sector. You need to carry out research using supportive materials like books, websites, journals etc. and should be correctly referenced.

Your poster presentations should address 1.1 and a leaflet for 1.2:

1.1 – Explain key historical developments in the travel and tourism sector

1.2 – Explain the structure of the travel and tourism sector.

TASK 2 (LO2, AC2.1, 2.2, 2.3, M1, M2, M3, D1, D2, D3)

You have been employed as a Project officer in TUI Group in the United Kingdom; you are planning for the new events to promote TUI Group tourism Businesses in China. TUI Group is looking at expanding its operations in the Chinese market focusing mainly on leisure and business tourists.  You are attending a conference as a Project officer to give a presentation on the function of government, government sponsored bodies and international agency in travel and tourism sector, and how local and national economic policy influences the success of the travel and tourism sector in the UK. Your research assistant has brought the following articles which he thinks may be helpful in your preparation.

(Article 1) London welcomes new visitor visas for Chinese tourists

Starting in 2016, new visitor visas for tourists from China will be valid in the UK for 2 years, which is 4 times the usual 6 month limit for standard visitor visas. There are also plans to introduce a new 10 year multiple entry visit visa for Chinese tourists at no extra cost.

The economic benefits for London’s tourism economy are expected to be significant. Over the past five years (2009-2014), the number of Chinese visitors coming to London has risen by 112 per cent. Spending over the same period has risen by 167 per cent and forecasts for the next 8 years from Oxford Economics anticipate additional growth of 77 per cent.

The national picture is also positive. Chinese tourists currently contribute £500 million annually to the UK economy with record numbers visiting the UK to make the most of all the retail opportunities and visitor attractions on offer – up 35% between April and June this year compared to the same period in 2014, according to latest figures from VisitBritain.

Prime Minister David Cameron said: “China is becoming one of our fastest-growing tourism markets so making it easier and more convenient for Chinese visitors to come to the UK is extremely important. That is why the announcement I’m making today is great news for our tourism industry and great news for the British economy enabling us to maximise Chinese spending power even further. It will mean that the UK has the best offer in Europe for Chinese tourists and will build on our already strong people to people links, strengthening UK-China relations further”

Gordon Innes, CEO of London & Partners, the Mayor’s official promotional company for London which runs VisitLondon.com said: “This is fantastic news for London and its Chinese visitors, who are already coming to the capital in record numbers and spending more than ever. Our visitor offering for the Chinese market spans a range of hospitality services and user-friendly tools for Chinese visitors to get the most out of their visit, from impeccable feng shui to congee at breakfast, Chinese-speaking staff, China Union Pay facilities, translated audio guides and much more. London & Partners is working closely with partners across the industry to promote the capital to Chinese tourists and develop initiatives to boost the numbers of visitors coming to London from China in the future.” You can follow this article by visiting:

Article 2 Record number of Chinese tourists flocking to London after Brexit sparks plunge in the pound

The plunge in the pound after the Referendum vote and a simpler visa system have helped send flight bookings from China soaring

The number of Chinese flight bookings is up 81 per cent compared with January 2016, with most planning trips in the run-up to the start of the Year of the Rooster on 28 January 2017.

For the first three months of 2017, bookings are already 43 per cent ahead of last year according to the data from specialist travel analysts ForwardKeys.

Tourism chiefs point to the opening of new hotels, such as the five star Great Scotland Yard Hotel and the huge budget hotel at the Trocadero on Piccadilly Circus, as well as events marking the 125th anniversary of the publication of the first Sherlock Holmes story and the Pink Floyd “blockbuster” exhibition at the V&A as reasons to hope that London will retain its status as the world’s most visited city by overseas travellers in 2017.

They are particularly delighted with the jump in Chinese bookings after years of careful courting of tour operators in the world’s most populous country, who have traditionally favoured Paris over the London.

Jo Leslie, who runs the Great Chinese Welcome Programme for the Government agency VisitBritain, said: ”Chinese tourists in London spend twice as long as they do in mainland Europe, spend twice as much money and the numbers are growing at twice the rate.”

London is 11 per cent cheaper this year for Chinese visitors following the slump in the value of the pound against the Yuan in the wake of the shock referendum result.

A major overhaul of the visa application process, including extending the life of visas from six months to two years and the opening of new application centres, has also encouraged visits from China.

You also have to present a summary of an article for publication in Travel and Tourism magazine discussing the implications of political change on the travel and tourism sector for example with reference to China and United Kingdom. You can also select different countries experiencing political change.

You need to carry out a research to support your findings by using supportive materials like books, websites, etc., and give a feedback addressing 2.1, 2.2, and 2.3.

AnalyseThese tasks require you to explore the different aspects of an issue, considering the relative significance of each. You would normally need to explore causal relationships, examining how an action will lead to a particular reaction. This type of task would not normally require you to make judgements, but rather to drill down into an issue, exploring relationships in depth.
AssessThis requires you to weigh up the positive and negative aspects of something. Alternatively, it might require you to explore the important and unimportant aspects of an argument. You should build these strands into a balanced argument before reaching a final balanced conclusion.
CompareIdentify similarities and differences between two or more factors
Critically

analyse

 

This is when you have to explore the strengths and weaknesses of the ideas of a theorist or claims made by a professional body before reaching a final, balanced conclusion. You would normally begin by presenting the initial idea and arguments in favour of it, before introducing contradictory arguments. When you present the arguments, you should present their relative merits (e.g. their strengths and weaknesses) before summarising your arguments and reaching a final conclusion.
DiscussConsider different aspects of a theme or topic, how they interrelate, and the extent to which they are important.
EvaluateThis type of question will require you to give an opinion on an issue, which you should support with relevant evidence. You should ensure that your response provides a balanced view of the issue, exploring points for and against your argument. This should lead to an overall conclusion where you summarise your main arguments and explain how you have come to your final decision.
ExplainTo give an account of the purposes or reasons
JustifyLearners give reasons or evidence to:

● support an opinion

● prove something is right or reasonable.
