Successful students get ready to engage with industry

Three students from the undergraduate tourism management courses at Leeds Beckett University have been successfully chosen as local Institute of Travel and Tourism Student Ambassadors. 

The role involves working with this key industry body to ensure that students’ opinions are heard as the industry works hard to recover from the global pandemic. Working as an Ambassador gives our students unrivalled access to senior industry executives during meetings, conferences and events and allows them to contribute to its future success.  Claire Steiner, the ITT’s & Chair of Education and Training said she wanted our ambassadors to become “a voice for tourism students, challenging industry and providing insight to future employers”.

Free Networking Conferece

The ambassadors have no time to waste as the first virtual networking event between the ITT and tourism students from across our region takes place online on Wednesday 18th Nov. This event will consider opportunities for the tourism industry to rebuild and reimagine itself following the global pandemic and the vital role that young entrants into the industry can play in achieving this. This event is aimed at anyone with an interest in either studying or working in tourism and is perfect for anyone in college or university, thinking about what their next move might be.
