2022 is just around the corner – here’s why so many are enrolling with ITC already!

Posted on 03/11/2021 by

We’re enrolling for 2022, and already seeing plenty of sign ups!

With the New Year not far away, many students are wondering what comes after high school. And many, as it turns out, have decided that it’s a career in tourism in travel!

ITC is already enrolling for our 2022 courses, and we’re excited to see so many young learners from around the country choose the International Travel College of New Zealand.

Our courses cover levels 3, 4, and 5, and provide a range of industry-recognised qualifications in travel, tourism, and aviation. Each course offers a realistic look into the industry, and provides the skills and knowledge you’ll need to get started in a role.

Of course we’re excited about our courses – but why are students so keen on ITC as well? Here’s a little more about why young learners love ITC.

Why are students choosing ITC?

There are countless reasons why ITC is a wonderful college, and different benefits will appeal to different people.

Here are just some of the most common reasons why students enrol:

  • Award-winning, industry recognised training
  • Qualifications that give you the skills and knowledge to get started
  • Four-day study weeks (Monday to Thursday) for better study-life balance
  • Small classrooms where students can connect with others and tutors
  • Industry contacts that often hire ITC graduates
  • Employment consultants who help students and graduates find industry jobs
  • Flexible learning when you need it
  • Tutors who have real industry experience (and love travel!)
  • Supportive tutors and staff who are personally invested in your success!

If you’re unsure about where to enrol for 2022, we put together some questions you might ask your potential providers. You can check out those questions (and ITC’s answers), right here.

Why students are so excited to study tourism, travel, and aviation right now

 Tourism, travel, and aviation has been through a rough patch, but anyone can see now that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel – and it’s brighter than the sun.

Our own industry contacts are telling us that major airlines are desperately hiring to fill roles. We’ve seen a massive uptick in travel and tourism companies here and overseas hiring and advertising their businesses. And we’ve excitedly watched as the world has opened up to travel once again, as we know that New Zealand isn’t far away from making the same move.

That’s why now is such an incredibly exciting time to study tourism and travel. Our courses are 20 weeks at minimum and two years at maximum, meaning that anyone who enrols now will be graduating right as the industry is well and truly booming again – which means plenty of jobs and opportunities for those with the right skills and qualifications.

Now’s the time to get on board, and the students enrolling right now know they’re going to graduate into a world overflowing with possibilities.

What our team has to say

Tutor Daniel Maine has been busy running info sessions for high school students who have taken short courses over the past year. He had this to say about the recent enrolments:

“This recent lockdown has given us opportunities to reconnect with high school students! 

Most have enjoyed our fun short courses, listened to our Tourism presentations, or met us at Career Expos. The excitement in their voices whilst sharing their dream job within tourism is just that first step towards success! In worrying times, this current climate has everyone thinking outside the square, and students are optimistic about their future in tourism!”

He added that students have shown real enthusiasm when it comes to getting started:

  • ‘So wait?! I can study at ITC fees-free, when can I start?’
  • Wow awesome! Thanks for the info, this is what I want to do’
  • ‘I’m really excited, yes, how do I enrol?’ 

“As a premium tertiary provider in Travel, Tourism & Aviation, these ambitious individuals recognise the quality training we offer,” he added.

Michelle, our Campus City Manager, is just as excited to welcome the new year and the new students:

“Really exciting to see the huge number of students already enrolled to join ITC in 2022! As a team we can’t wait to welcome them to ITC and train them to go into the industry that we have all come from and love!”
