A few weeks ago our current Hospitality students went on an outing in Downtown Vancouver. Accompanied by their knowledgeable instructor, they visited a grand total of 12 Luxury and Mid-scale class Hotels in the booming tourist destination.
“The outing was for the Sales and Marketing class to learn about different Hotel classifications and the Vancouver Visitor and Convention Bureau” the instructor noted. “The focus was on amenities and price structures for visitors to the city.”
The students who attended the field trip not only got a firsthand look behind the scenes of these beautiful hotels, they also got to see a lot of the concepts they are currently learning about in action.
Additionally, the students currently attending the Facilities Management class have been working with the Communications Officer from the Surrey RCMP to develop “Lock-down Procedures” specifically taking in consideration the circumstances of Brighton College’s newest Surrey Campus. If approved, these procedures will be included in the Health and Safety Manual for the school.
The students also went on to update and revise the entire manual for the college’s three locations in Burnaby, Vancouver, and Surrey. This new and improved manual will go through all phases of presentation and approval and hopefully become a part of the college’s regular procedure.
