New Jet2Suite opens in the School of Events, Tourism & Hospitality Management.
Over 40 delegates joined us at the launch of the newly branded Jet2Suite on Monday 20 January. The new teaching spaces are designed to give our students an excellent learning environment. They provide interactive training facilities and seminars, ensuring our students establish a close link with industry professionals.
Professor Rhodri Thomas, Dean of the School said: “We are committed to providing a high quality, research-informed vocational education that is relevant to industry. Working with forward-thinking stakeholders like Jet2.Com, we aim to inspire our students to make a positive difference in the world and equip them to become the tourism leaders of tomorrow".
We have a long-standing relationship with Jet2. Over 90 of our alumni are currently employed by the award-winning airline, 40 from our school. One of the classrooms has a Hall of Fame showcasing our alumni and inspiring others to follow in their footsteps - pop along and see the space for yourself in Macauley Hall, Headingley Campus.
Before joining Leeds Beckett as Head of the Centre for Tourism and Hospitality Management, Peter worked for ten years at University of Wolverhampton, as a Senior Lecturer in Tourism and Events, then as Head of Leisure and latterly as Head of Marketing, Innovation, Leisure and Enterprise.
