New training scheme announced for caravan industry

It’s not all doom and gloom for our economy – despite some challenging times over the past few years, the popularity of UK caravan holidays has risen 14%! With this in mind, a new initiative has been launched to train young people hoping for a career in the booming British leisure industry.

The scheme, launched by SkillsActive and Caravan Industry Training, will help youngsters gain essential tourism qualifications over a two year period, equipping them for caravanning and camping business roles.

“This course has received huge praise from current and graduate students,” Caravan Industry Training’s Jenny Pritchard told Caravan Times. “The Foundation Degree in Tourism Park Management is helping professionalise this exciting industry, providing adequate skills and training to a sector which contributes so much to the UK economy.”

If you’re one of the people to turn from foreign holidays to caravanning adventures in recent years, don’t forget to make sure your touring caravan insurance policy is up to date.
