Travel and Tourism Students Embark on ‘Mystery Tour of North Wales’
Level 2 and 3 Travel and Tourism learners have enjoyed their recent induction to their new course at Coleg Cambria Deeside.
The students experienced a variety of activities which all related to their course during their first few days at the college. Problem solving, working with others and a holiday destination task were all on the agenda for induction.
The students also embarked on a ‘Mystery Tour of North Wales’. Throughout the journey they were required to identify man-made and natural attractions along the way, an activity which will compliment one of the units the learners will study.
The first stop on the tour was Conwy; some students visited The Smallest House in Great Britain, whilst others sampled coffee and Bara Brith in the local tearoom.
The tour continued on to Llandudno. Learners received the red carpet treatment on arrival at the St George’s Hotel as well as a tour of the building.
The next destination was the Tourist Information Centre to collect information to use in the first assignment. Finally, the visit to Llandudno would not be complete without the purchase of a tasty stick of rock.
The Travel and Tourism learners all enjoyed their interesting day out; they found it to be a good chance to get to know each other better. It was informative and interesting and they learnt a lot.
Coleg Cambria Travel and Tourism lecturer, Sue Griffiths said:
“This trip was a great kick-start to the course for the students. It gave them a chance to spend time with fellow learners that they are just starting to get to know, as well as an induction to the various units they will study over the next academic year. An interesting day out was enjoyed by all.”
