Education, Learning, Training and Skills
Educational tourism is twofold - attracting and educating visitors and educational based trips. The industry brings high value and high economic benefits and should be recognised for its importance and reach.
White Cliffs Country (Dover District) has a growing reputation as a great place to learn and study, beyond a visit and the areas obvious links to the national curriculum and school or college day and overnight trips. A new generation of learners are discovering what makes White Cliffs Country great.
We are planning to build stronger relationships with our local educational providers to facilitate future growth, as well as learning, training & skills development, ensuring that the required support is in place to facilitate and nurture opportunity, including progress within the economy. We invite you to join us as we become even greater.
