You will have the opportunity to gain work experience with some of the region’s leading organisations, such as the Mary Rose Museum, Village Hotel, Queens Hotel Portsmouth, Hovertravel and Portsmouth Guildhall. You will enjoy many trips during the year to top tourist attractions, as well as industry visits, talks and the opportunity to attend a three-day study break to an overseas/UK based destination.
A minimum of five GCSEs at grade 4 or above, including English, plus a merit or above on the National Foundation Diploma.
This National Extended Diploma is full time for one year and follows on from the Level 3 National Foundation Diploma, which also lasts for one year. This course starts in September and ends in June/July. You are expected to attend for a minimum of 16 hours per week. You must successfully complete both years to gain the Extended Diploma.
You will learn through a mixture of taught lessons, group work and practical activities and this will be applied to actual events and activities within travel and tourism. Assessment for the diploma is via coursework which may take the form of written assessments, short presentations on given topics, practical role-play or group work for each unit. You will also undertake a written exam in two units.
You could progress to a degree course at university or employment.
