5 February - 8 February

Visitor Economy Week - Sponsored by The Apprenticeship Hub


Why We Are Holding Visitor Economy Week

The City Region’s Visitor Economy generates £4.1bn and plays a vital part in the City Region’s economy with massive potential and opportunity for the next generation.

Visitor Economy Week aims to raise the profile of the sector and enhance its perception as a progressive career choice. It has been developed by the Local Enterprise Partnership’s Visitor Economy team in collaboration with the FE Colleges and skills providers across the City Region. The week aims to ensure skills development sits at the forefront of improving the competitiveness and quality of the sector.

Together an implementation plan has been developed which sets out a range of actions, including:

  • increasing secondary school engagement with the Visitor Economy sector
  • targeting students seeking vocational training opportunities outside of Sixth Form
