Careers in Park Management

The general management of a park requires the same principles of good management that should be found in any business. The aim of CITO is not to replicate any training that can be found elsewhere, and therefore we do not provide general management training. However there are a number of key areas specific to the caravan industry and therefore we have tailored courses to meet the needs of those managing and running a caravan holiday or residential park.

NVQ Level 3: Leisure Management

This qualification is aimed at anyone on the park who has a supervisory role – on a large park they could work in sales, administration, retail, entertainment, maintenance or any other specialism. On a smaller park they could be a trainee or junior manager. This is a park based training program with all instruction and assessment carried out on your park (and is therefore not suitable for anyone who is not currently working on a park).

Other Training

There are a number of maintenance and technical operations carried out on a park (such as siting/de-siting operations) which as a manager you may either be directly involved in or will at least be responsible for members of staff who are. As a manager you should also be aware of the technical training CITO provide such as the BTEC Safe Siting Award, ISRM Pool Plant Operators Certificate and Health & Safety in the Workplace which can be found in the Maintenance & Technical Training advice section.
