A Well Deserved Success, ITC student again with TOP marks!Posted on 21/09/2012 by itcnz
ITC student Raffaela Macke has received the country’s highest marks in this year’s International Air Transport Association (IATA) Foundation in Travel and Tourism examination.
The International Travel College is an IATA Authorized Training Center (ATC), which allows it to teach IATA’s travel, tourism and aviation programmes.
Raffaela completed the programme as part of her two-year International Diploma in Tourism and Travel Management.
This is the second year in a row that an ITC student has attained this distinction: last year Cristina Traczinski, also studying the management diploma, was the country’s top performer.
“We are thrilled both for Raffaela and for her tutor, Steve Burke, who is achieving great success with his students on this programme,” says ITC’s Managing Director Kerry Priestley.
“It’s important to us that our students are given every opportunity to succeed in the industry,” says Kerry.
“The IATA is an international trade body that represents some 230 airlines and around 93% of scheduled international air traffic, so the award comes from a highly respected industry body. It’s real-world recognition of the practical skills and experience we offer our students.”
This prestigious award is internationally recognised and will certainly help Raffaela in her chosen career.
Raffaela, who is originally from Germany, is an excellent student, says Kerry: “She thoroughly deserves this success.”
ITC’s staff and students congratulate Raffaela on her important achievement.
