FdA Tourism Park Management

Tourism and park management is a growing industry which is becoming more prominent in the public eye. This part-time course is therefore aimed at people who are employed or interested in a career within holiday parks.

This compelling course focuses on the development of skills and knowledge appropriate to the caravan park industry and aims to provide you with the skills and knowledge appropriate to managing a caravan park. It also aims to provide you with the skills necessary to enhance career prospects or to pursue further study. What’s more it has been designed in parallel to the level 4 diploma in Hospitality, Leisure & Tourism. This diploma will allow you to gain an additional qualification, leave at the end of level 4 with an intermediate award or join the foundation degree at level 5 with recognition of prior learning.

Tourism Park Management is taught at Kingston Maurward College in Dorchester, a BU Partner College. All aspects of your course from teaching, accommodation and student life will be based here. On graduation from this course you’ll receive a degree from Bournemouth University. Please remember to book onto an open day at Kingston Maurward to gain a full understanding of the course and location.
