ITC and Study From Home have just opened up applications for some amazing scholarship opportunities!
As the New Zealand tourism industry has got back into the swing of things, businesses are seeking new and qualified staff such as graduates from ITC and Study From Home.
“New Zealand continues to be one of the world’s top tourism destinations, and with the borders open, international visitors are returning. We need to support our sector to rebuild a more resilient future that leaves people, communities and the environment better off than before,” Peeni Henare said.
We are doing our bit to support our industry, ITC is helping people with a passion for joining the Travel & Tourism industry gain first-class skills and knowledge. We want to help even more by giving away multiple scholarships for full-time students, which are worth up to $5,600 per student. Not only that, it’s also on top of the Fees Free program, so you could have the first part of your study covered by Fees Free, and the second part partially paid for by a scholarship!Airline, In the Community, News, Study inspiration, Travel and Tourism News | Tagged airline, Aviation, education, free study, ITC scholarship, ITC scholarships, ITCNZ, scholarship, Study at ITC, study for free, study tourism, tertiary, Tourism, Travel, travel college | Leave a reply
Many ITC and Study From Home students begin study with us with the goal of working as a flight attendant.
Botany graduate Lillie Robinson is a great example. She began studying with us with flight attending in mind, and while her tutors ensured she knew about the many other great options in the industry, they also supported her in her work to become a flight attendant.
Today, we’re excited to see Lillie succeed, as she graduated from ITC and went on to land a flight attending role with Qantas – and is now loving her job!
Read on to learn more about Lillie’s time with us and her new dream job.Airline, News, Student success | Tagged Dream job, Flight attenant, Graduate interview, Qantas | Leave a reply
Late last year, ITC hosted an Air New Zealand open day on campus. This event was a fantastic opportunity where the Air New Zealand team gave a presentation to students and graduates, and did live interviews on the spot for candidates.
Following these interviews was a multi-step process, involving reference checks, swim tests, and training.
And now, we’re excited to see the first ITC graduate from that day, Menghour Pen, has finished his training and is becoming a flight attendant with Air New Zealand! However, there’s much more to Menghour’s story than just making it through the selection process.Airline, News, Student success | Tagged Air New Zealand, Flight attending, Graduate interview, Open Day |
On Thursday last week, ITC hosted an Air New Zealand open day to connect our national carrier with our current students and graduates.
We wanted to create an opportunity for our students and graduates to learn about the flight attending roles currently available at Air New Zealand, and enjoy the chance to speak to recruiters from the company.
As expected, the day was a huge hit!Airline, News | Tagged Air New Zealand, Flight attending, Open Day | Leave a reply
As the New Zealand travel and tourism industry gears up for a very busy summer season ahead, we’re seeing our ITC graduates get snapped up by employers practically as they walk out the door from their graduation ceremony. Many before they graduate.
One of those employers is Air New Zealand, which is quickly hiring and training staff across their operations all over the country. We are fortunate to be recognised as a preferred provider for many airlines and tourism organisations. Our highly skilled graduates are sought after by the industry.
For us, these job offers are hugely exciting, as many of our graduates begin studying with us with the goal of working for this renowned and award-winning airline. To see students land their dream jobs immediately is everything we could hope for as an education provider.
One of these graduates is Ruby Cowie, a Study From Home graduate who has been dreaming of working with Air New Zealand since she was 10 years old. We reached out to Ruby to have a quick chat about the application process and her advice for other students.Airline, News, Student success | Tagged Air New Zealand, Cabin Crew, Student success |
In late July, Auckland Airport opened its doors in a massive recruitment fair. There were over 3,000 jobs up for grabs, and more than 4,000 people attended the event.
This recruitment fair was at just at the right time, only a day before the border finally officially opened fully once again. Much like the rest of the tourism and travel companies around New Zealand, Auckland Airport was looking to bring on new staff to get ready for the rush of tourists expected this summer.
Here’s a little more about the recruitment day, and why it means it’s such a good time to study travel and tourism!Airline, News | Tagged Auckland Airport, Recruitment fair, Work in travel and tourism | Leave a reply

At ITC, we pride ourselves on our industry contacts. It’s one of the many reasons why ITC and Study From Home graduates are so well regarded amongst the New Zealand travel, tourism, and aviation sectors.
We keep in regular contact with these industry professionals, and we were recently fortunate to hear from a Kiwi pilot working for one of the major airlines. While we cannot reveal their name or their company, we can share their story about exactly what it was like for an accomplished pilot as New Zealand went into lockdown and travel ground to a halt.
From disregarding the virus as media hype, to facing reality, finding low-skilled work, and positivity through it all, this is an incredible story of Kiwi resilience and an industry that’s once again on the rise.
