Fin-tastic graduation for Staffordshire students
A group of 20 students made a splash with their graduation ceremony today (Tuesday, 30th November) as it is was held amongst sharks and stingrays in Sharkbait Reef by SEALIFE at Alton Towers Resort.
Donned in traditional cap and gown, the Visitor Attraction and Resort Management degree students from Staffordshire University took centre stage in front of the attraction? Ocean Tank, home to blacktip sharks, leopard shark and spotted rays, to be greeted by a specialist diver for a unique photo opportunity to mark the occasion.
Each student then made their way over the nearby Ray Tank, home to several species of Rays, before receiving their own official graduation scroll.
At the ceremony, the students were joined by representatives from both Alton Towers Resort and Staffordshire University for the 3 hour event. It celebrated the success of both first year and second year students on the Foundation Degree Visitor Attraction and Resort Management course, which is delivered in partnership with Staffordshire University. The unique course supports those looking to establish a career in visitor attractions, with modules from HR and Marketing, to hospitality management and finance and revenue management to give learners the knowledge, skills and work experience needed to progress in the exciting and diverse tourism industry.
Designed in accordance with guidelines published by the Events, Hospitality, Leisure, Sport and Tourism (EHLST) network, students complete a 20-week, paid work placement with Alton Towers Resort.
Graduate James Thompson, who has just completed his third year of the course, said: ? chose the course because I have a passion for the industry. For me, the highlight has been the chance to get exposure to a variety and departments and job roles across the Resort. The degree has developed me academically and professionally, as we get to apply the theory we learn at the University to the departments we get to experience via the placements across the Resort. The dedication and support from the University has been great, they?e helped make it so enjoyable. Today? ceremony was a fantastic way to celebrate the end of our degree.?
Fellow graduate Drew Willoughby, said: ?eing local, I decided to undertake the course because Alton Towers Resort has a special place in my heart and the degree was just so unique. I have experienced incredible opportunities both behind-the-scenes and front of house. I have also made life-long friends and taken part in events that are only possible here at Alton Towers. I now plan to progress further through the course, build my confidence and gain even more experience, which has been incomparable to other degrees. I have loved today? unique graduation. It was such a fitting way to celebrate such a unique degree.?
Jason Mumford, Senior Recruitment & Learning and Development Manager at Alton Towers Resort, said: ?he students have worked so hard and it was important to us that we gave them a ceremony to remember. Being a student of any kind has come with its challenges over the last couple of years and we are incredibly proud of their perseverance, determination and hard work. This course, for many, is integral to their future aspirations and it is thanks to Staffordshire University and all their lecturers that we can make this possible for so many. The industry we work in can be both challenging and exciting, so this course is imperative in helping students understand all aspects of the business they are entering as well as the range of fantastic opportunities it presents.?
