A Subject-Based Aspect Report on Provision in Scotland's Colleges by HM Inspectors on Behalf of the Scottish Funding Council: Hospitality and Tourism
Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education
The HM Inspectorate of Education publication, "External quality arrangements for Scotland's colleges, September 2008," specifies that HMIE will produce a number of subject aspect reports over the four years 2008-12. These reports complement in a subject specific context the generic evaluations of learning and teaching in HMIE's reports of colleges. Colleges should act on the recommendations contained in these reports. College inspectors will monitor action towards implementation of these recommendations as part of their normal dialogue with colleges, and will wish to discuss issues arising from subject aspect reports during annual engagement visits. In preparing this report, inspectors visited a sample of eight colleges, drew on the findings of published reviews of colleges, and examined other relevant publications and reports. They have consulted with key stakeholders, including the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA), employers and other professional bodies. This report evaluates college programmes delivered in the Hospitality and Travel and Tourism departments in Scotland's colleges. For the purposes of this report, this covers programmes in food preparation and food service, hospitality management and travel and tourism. Programmes covered by this report are offered at levels 4 to 8 of the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF). Appended are: (1) Colleges involved in fieldwork for this report; (2) Table 1; and (3) Glossary of terms. (Contains 1 table and 10 footnotes.)
