Travel and Tourism

Welcome to Travel and Tourism at Blackburn College!

Your tutors are Jenn and Gill, our email addresses are below should you have any questions please feel free to ask us. You can also fill in the form at the bottom of this page.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Blackburn College.

To help prepare you for the transition into College life we have designed a small challenge.

We look forward to viewing your work at enrolment for the course and hopefully on Twitter before that!

Task 1

Research the following sectors within Travel & Tourism

  • Accommodation
  • Visitor attractions (UK and Globally)
  • Conferencing and events
  • Transport

Can you create a mood board related to each of the different sectors? Think about what is included within the different sectors in terms of different types of transport or accommodation for examples and different companies within each sector.

A mood board should be colourful and full of images related to the topic. Try to keep a list of all the websites you visit or brochures and books you read. Once you have made your mood board can you write one paragraph for each sector explaining about what you have included and found.

If you can then send a picture on twitter to @bbcollege #travel&tourism

Task 2 - Sustainable Tourism

In the current climate, both Travel and Tourism are becoming more environmentally friendly, especially with it being a multi-billion pounds industry.

Get fun and creative before you enrol by trying out our sustainable tourism activity here.

This could be completed either on the computer or by hand.
