Abstract

Higher Education within the UK is experiencing many changes, one of which is the changing nature of graduate profiles (Higher Education Academy, 2014). Traditionally Tourism and Hospitality education was predominately composed of home students. In recent years this has changed to include more international students.
Our longitudinal research study of four years indicated that those international students’ encounter challenges when adapting to the UK University teaching systems, developing employability skills and integrating within the community.
To address these challenges the lecturing team created a conceptual framework named The Learning, Assessment, Pastoral (LAP) conceptual Framework, which provides for a theoretical model perpetuating the concepts of incremental learning, critical thinking; volunteering, competitive spirit and mentoring. The entrenched framework formulation enables students to build confidence and a sense of belonging as well as an appreciation of the teaching, learning and assessment styles.
