Mind Our Business – Travel and Tourism, Business Studies

£50 per class, KS4 & KS5

The Mind our Business Talk offers groups a behind the scenes insight into the running of Beamish Museum.

The class splits into groups. Each group will then be given a clue or clues which will lead them to a different part of the town. Each group should only visit the exhibits they have been led to by their own clues.

The talk can be tailored to the needs of your group, including topics such as:

  • Marketing
  • Health and Safety
  • Running of the Museum
  • Visitor Management
  • Events
  • Hospitality
  • Visitor Engagement and Customer Service
  • Jobs and structure of the organisation
  • Finance and funding

Students get real life business information. They have the opportunity to ask questions and then visit the museum to reflect on how the principles of the business actually translate in the performance of the Museum.

Teachers can take all the available information away with them provided they bring a memory stick.
