CPD in the Tourism industry

Overview of the Tourism Industry

Visits to the UK surpassed 34.3 million in 2014, with an average spend of £636 equating to a total spend of £21.8 billion for the UK economy. France, Germany and the US account for to 30% of all UK visitors and 27% of total tourism expenditure (VisitBritain, 2015).

Tourism is one of the fastest growing sectors for UK employment, and is set to have total industry value of £257 billion by 2025. The tourism industry provides 3.1 million jobs to the UK economy which equates to 9.6% of total UK employment (Deloitte, 2013).

According to VisitBritain, in the 2014 Anholt GfK Nations Brand Index the UK retained 3rd place as a ‘nation brand’ behind Germany and the USA. Rankings cover 50 nations, including leading and emerging economies, and are produced by collating the views of 20,000 people around the world annually. The overall nation brand is made up of scores for six dimensions – Tourism, Culture, People, Immigration-Investment, Exports and Governance. Looking at the dimensions relevant for tourism the UK ranked 3rd out of 50 nations in terms of a ‘Tourism’ brand and 5th for ‘Culture’.

The Tourism Alliance states that the UK tourism industry has become the UK’s fifth largest export earner, with revenue from inbound tourism increasing by almost 30% since 2008. Domestic tourism has grown significantly with revenue increasing by 11% to £78bn from 2011 to 2014. 

CPD in the Tourism Sector

Continuing Professional Development is central to the activities of the Tourism Management Institute (TMI) and that of the Tourism Society. TMI is committed to supporting individuals as tourism destination management professionals and recognises that good quality CPD is essential to ongoing effectiveness as a tourism professional.

The Institute of Hospitality requires members to participate in CPD to ensure they remain competent and knowledgeable professionals. Members are encouraged to keep a CPD record and those members looking to upgrade membership will have CPD activity taken into account when the upgrade is under consideration.

The Institute of Tourist Guiding describes Continuing Professional Development as the way to update and expand knowledge, and to further develop skills. The Institute believes it is essential that members undertake and keep a record of CPD to demonstrate commitment to sustaining assured levels of guiding competence.
