Congratulations on passing the Dorset County module! Now you are at the last step to becoming a Dorset Ambassador, and have chosen the Purbeck module as your ‘specialist subject’.
This module is for everyone who works in tourism but in particular those who live and work in Purbeck – in Swanage or Wareham or one of the villages along the coast, or involved with the Jurassic Coast and how visitors can experience all that this has to offer. It provides you with all the basics you need to make sure visitors receive the warmest possible welcome, vital for anyone who needs to know what the area offers. And you will learn some interesting facts – facts you can pass onto your customers when they ask.
Make sure you read each section carefully before attempting the quiz at the end. When you’ve completed this successfully you will be a Dorset Ambassador and can print your certificate. And, if it inspires you to go further, you can always complete one of the other regional modules as well.
There are four short lessons to complete. So good luck!
The district of Purbeck stretches along the Dorset coastline from White Nothe to the west of Lulworth Cove to Shell Bay; and north to the edges of Poole and Wimborne Minster. The area south of Wareham is known as the ‘Isle of Purbeck’. The district is known for its dramatic coastline, sandy beaches and picturesque villages and towns. It is popular with visitors particularly in summer but because it offers walking and other active opportunities there are visitors here throughout the year.
