Where Can We Find Information On Leisure and Tourism?

Extracts from this document...


Mrs Edge and Mr Bevan are leisure and tourism Teachers. Mrs Edge covers leisure and Mr Bevan covers tourism. They both have a great deal of knowledge on the subject as They, themselves have studied leisure and tourism at school, college and maybe even university. They also have achieved qualifications and passed exams in leisure and tourism, in order for them to teach what they have learnt, to others. They have both taught the subject and related ones (such as geography) for a few years, and so they would be able to help us with finding out information on certain topics within the leisure and tourism course that we take during years 10 and 11. Business Teachers can also help us to find out information on leisure and tourism. They can help us in different ways to Teachers of one particular subject, because Business Studies covers all the work industries, and as leisure and tourism is a popular and rising industry in the real world, they would be able to provide us with lots of different types of information. This information they provide can be a varied range of ideas. Mrs Hancock and Miss kingsmill, the Business Teachers, have teached pupis about all types of Businesses, including leisure and tourism. ...read more.

We can access very detailed information on leisure and tourism from the Geography department in many ways as leisure and tourism is studied in Geography lessons. We can record any information found from Geography resources such as from books, posters, and even display work done by other pupils. We can use the help of the department teachers as I stated, to help us with finding out information. The Geography department would give us most of the information that we need throughout the year as leisure and tourism is related a lot with Geography. The Business studies department would be able to give us the majority of information on the actual leisure and tourism business itself. So with the both departments, we get given info from two different aspects of the subject studied. We can also get given computer programs from a particular department which are installed on the department's computers or saved on a floppy disk or compact disc for that department's use only. We can access the information more productively and close-focused with one aspect in one of the two departments mentioned. We can find information on leisure and tourism in a number of ways from each resource and I will now know for myself after producing this directory, that I can point out precisely where information can be found.
