Last week Bournemouth University School of Tourism showcased it’s CPD Programme at the Hotel and Catering Show 2013.
As well as exhibitions from companies in the hospitality industry, the show also included live food demonstrations from some prestigious chefs and restaurants.
The School of Tourism were there to showcase their CPD 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.
The show was successful for the School of Tourism with lots of potential new business leads.
Could bespoke CPD give your organisation the edge over your competitors?
