Travel & Tourism
It is with great sadness that Milton Keynes College confirms that it will not be able to offer places for new students on Travel & Tourism courses for the academic year 2014/15. However, all students whose courses have already begun WILL be able to complete them and will be properly resourced and supported. The College understands that this is a serious disappointment for those who had hoped to begin their studies in September but believes it is the correct decision. All students who indicate an interest in Travel and Tourism are being offered the opportunity to study suitable alternatives.
Deputy Principal, Nick Isles, says, “The travel and tourism industries have undergone enormous change in recent years with the wholesale migration of the sector from the High Street to the internet. We are currently working with a wide range of industry stakeholders to develop the right approach for the evolving Visitor economy. It is vital for the economy of the city, its employers and students that the College focuses its resources to meet the challenges of a changing environment. This means that each year we review future jobs demand and then develop appropriate curriculum to try and meet that demand in partnership with industry and other stakeholders.
People who have applied for Travel & Tourism at Milton Keynes are being contacted individually by the College’s Information, Advice & Guidance team to discuss their situation and the possible alternatives.
