FANCY BEING A CAMPSITE WARDEN?

Kingston Maurward College in Dorset is now recruiting for a new student intake on the Foundation Degree in Tourism Park Management, beginning 13 January 2014.

 

The course has been designed for the caravan parks industry and to benefit those working, or hoping to work, in it. This is a part-time qualification, so the studies take place over 3½ years and the course covers management subjects in a caravan park context – strategy, marketing, finance, customer service, relevant legislation and more. 

 

Each module of the degree consists of a week-long residential unit on a UK caravan park and an academic assignment.

 

Jenny Pritchard, Head of Caravan Industry Training (CITO), responsible for the industry’s training, explains:

 

“The parks industry today is diverse and highly professional, values talent and individuality, and has a passion for what it does. Students not currently working in the industry can be assisted in finding a work placement to get first hand knowledge to back up their studies, and the flexible study pattern avoiding park busy periods would enable part time employment alongside study.

 

“To date, students have been already working in the industry, but it also provides an opportunity for those from outside the industry to take the first steps towards an exciting future.”

 

Further information on the degree can be obtained from Jenny Pritchard (CITO) on jenny@cito.org.uk. Visit the CITO website www.cito.org.uk to find out more.
