School of Tourism showcases its CPD Programme at the Hotel and Catering Show 2013

In March, the School of Tourism will be exhibiting at the Hotel and Catering show being held at the BIC on the 5th – 6th March, to showcase its  CPD (Continuing Professional Development) programme.

Keith Hayman, BU’s Head of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) in the School of Tourism, outlines how the course works:

“Everything about our CPD programme for employers is flexible, from course content to delivery times. Working closely with Hall & Woodhouse, the Dorset-based brewing and pub company ,we came up with a bespoke programme of 6 units delivered over eighteen months. The units include HE Study Skills; Hospitality Context; Services Marketing; People and Performance; E-Marketing and Financial Reporting. The first cohort received its CHE (Certificate of Higher Education) in 2012 and will progress to a Foundation Degree in Business and Hospitality Management in 2013” explains Keith.

Anthony Woodhouse , MD Hall & Woodhouse, shares his experience of working with the School of Tourism CPD Programme:

“From our perspective, the central pillar to H & W’s long term strategy is that we have to be a great place to work. It’s very simple. Learning and development sits at the very heart of that,”

“One of the additional benefits of the CPD programme is group cohesion. As a company we understand no-one can know everything about the business. Having our team, drawn from all parts of the business on this course means that when they come across a challenge, they have a peer group to help them find the solution.”
