Travel students follow in the footsteps of The BeatlesPublished: February 22, 2018
Travel and tourism students from Telford College have been following in the footsteps of The Beatles on a fact-finding visit to Liverpool.
The group are studying the UK as a destination as part of their first year programme, and chose to spotlight the city for a case study.
Tutor Sue Hayward explained: “There is no better way to appreciate a large city than to be there in person.
“We walked around the iconic Albert Dock, past the Echo Arena, and visited The Beatles Story museum, followed by a visit to Liverpool One, one of the UK’s largest shopping centres.
“This gave the students a great opportunity to appreciate the busy city’s facilities.”
The aim of the visit was to give students an understanding of how a large city mixes its tourism offer to appeal to both domestic and inbound tourism markets.
Sue added: “Visits like this enable students to complete their course work from real life experience, rather than text books.”
Telford College’s travel and tourism courses aim to prepare students for a range of careers, including air cabin crew, tour guides, travel agents, and information centre managers.
