Meet ITC’s fantastic new Tourism Education Tutor & Marketing Support person!

Posted on 21/02/2024 by

Seane is our new Tourism Education Tutor & Marketing Support person!

Seane Gifford, like so many of ITC’s incredible team, has an impressive background in travel and tourism.

She caught the travel bug from her mother at a young age, and always wondered what else was out there in the world for her to discover. That curiosity led to travels, qualifications, and amazing roles throughout her career.

Now, ITC is excited to welcome her to the team as a Tourism Education Tutor & marketing support person. We can’t wait to see her share her knowledge with students.

Learn more about her roots, her favourite job before now, what she’s looking forward to the most, and her advice for students below!

New Level 3 Certificate dates available now!

Posted on 07/02/2024 by

Our course dates are filling up, so we added a new one! Here’s some of the crew from Christmas last year.

The New Zealand Certificate in Tourism with a strand in Tourism and Travel Level 3 is one of our most popular course options.

It’s a fantastic entry-level course for anyone looking to take their first step into a career in travel and tourism, and it covers all the basic information you’ll need to work in a variety of roles, from hotel jobs to flight attending, travel agencies to airports.

This qualification is so popular, in fact, that the next start date on February 12 for the Auckland City Campus is already completely full. That’s why we’ve announced another intake for this course at the Auckland City Campus, which will start on March 11 (and is already starting to fill up!).

ITC to remain Fees Free in 2024!

Posted on 16/01/2024 by

Even with planned changes to the Fees Free Program, ITC is remaining Fees Free in 2024!

The Fees Free program offers a huge leg up for first time learners in New Zealand, but it is set to change as the government has decided to adapt the policy. Don’t panic, ITC still offers Fees Free to their learners!

Until now, the program has helped students to pay for the first year of their studies. With the new policy, Fees Free will cover the final year of a student’s qualifications, which often means the third year for university students undertaking a standard bachelor’s degree.

This has made some people nervous that potential students might be put off from starting a qualification, but the good news for ITC students is that it largely won’t change anything!
