What do teachers say about this resource? (8976,8977)

Very useful... User friendly and easy to use as a lesson with little preparation, so saves time... Useful prep for the P3 exam... It’s concise and you ‘can see the wood for the trees’... Good value for money and saves a huge amount of time

R West, HoD & Customer

Easy to use to support the delivery and research of the holiday industry... presentation of key data linking to the bullet points is useful, appropriate and easy to interpret... The data is very useful especially where it relates directly to the bullet points e.g. influences on consumers. Liked the BVA BDRC presentations of data... Liked the emerging economies table task and the Porters 5 Forces task... The structure of the tasks scaffolds learning to make students approach to the research project logical and synoptic. The practice paper questions papers mirror the actual exam and will be of good educational value to effectively prepare students with what to expect.

S Johnson, HoD & Peer Reviewer

The information and case studies within the document are useful and provide some good context to give students a platform to begin their research, particularly the information about staycations and space travel.
