Tourism to become an Achievement Standard subject from 2023

Posted on 13/10/2021 by

From 2023, tourism will be available as an Achievement Standard in New Zealand high schools.

 

 

In a massive, exciting announcement for the tourism industry, the Ministry of Education recently accepted tourism as an Achievement Standard subject, starting 2023.

This means that students will be able to earn Achievement Standards at levels 2 and 3 in high schools around New Zealand, and ITC couldn’t be more excited to see this pathway open up for young learners. In fact, we even had a hand in helping to make it happen.

Here’s a little more about the announcement and how ITC encouraged it to happen.

ITC Short Course team creates Eco Tourism program

Posted on 31/08/2021 by

An ITC Short Course guides students to create and execute sustainable ideas for their local communities.

When the pandemic put New Zealand tourism on pause in 2020, many New Zealanders and industry groups urged that we as a country take the opportunity to make the industry more eco-friendly.

The ‘Not 100% – but four steps closer to sustainable tourism’ report released in early 2021 was just one submission outlining ways we could improve how environmentally friendly our industry could be.

Additionally, the 2021 Sustainable Travel Report by Booking.com found that 77% of Kiwi travellers think sustainable travel is vital. 

At ITC, we also believe tourism can and should be more sustainable, which is why our short course team has recently created a new course dedicated to Eco Tourism. (more…)

Sharon is one of ITC’s friendly Course Advisors

ITC doesn’t just offer our own students training and education in travel, tourism, and aviation – we also have a dedicated Schools Programme that delivers short courses to high schools all over the country.

These short courses offer students the opportunity to earn NCEA levels 2 and 3 credits, and enjoy a taste of what the tourism industry is really like.

This is the time of year students make their decisions about further education beyond high school. At ITC we are here to make this process as easy as possible. One way we do this is by offering this process at their high school. (more…)

ITC teams up with Education Industry Solutions to help Gateway students and high schools across New Zealand

Posted on 11/03/2021 by

ITC has been working with Education Industry Solutions to offer support for students in gateway programmes around New Zealand.

The International Travel College (ITC) is most well-known for our level 3, 4, and 5 courses that offer qualifications in the tourism, travel, and aviation industries. However, our dedication to education, students, and the industry goes far beyond tertiary qualifications.

In fact, ITC has been working closely with Education Industry Solutions (EIS), a local group that facilitates gateway programmes for high schools all over New Zealand.

Here’s a little more on what EIS does, how we’ve been involved to help schools and students, and how ITC’s contributions have made a big difference for the team at EIS. (more…)

ITC enrolment season off to a positive start

Posted on 20/01/2021 by

Three students recently enrolled at ITC after finishing a high school short course with tutor Sarah.

It’s the start of a new year, but it’s undoubtedly a new year unlike any other. With so much upheaval, it’s been hard to tell if students are even thinking about their study options. 

ITC is off to a positive start this year, meeting our future 2021 students. Recently we had the pleasure to meet three students who have signed up at once following a summer short course at their high school. (more…)

The Fees Free initiative allows many students to study at ITC for free.

Short courses for high school students: Will you go on an epic adventure or pick up extra NCEA credits this summer?

Posted on 29/10/2020 by

Students can enjoy a thrilling zipline adventure during ITC’s two-day Ultimate Intrepid Journey course.

The weather is getting warmer already and there’s no doubt summer is on its way, although it may look a little different to what many students had in mind this year. With international travel off the cards, some won’t be heading away for holidays, while others won’t be heading home as planned.

With that in mind, Education New Zealand has launched a country-wide initiative to help support high school students this summer. The Great Kiwi Virtual Summer Fair is taking place this weekend on October 31 to offer inspiration and advice about enjoying the country the Kiwi way these holidays, whereas NauMai NZ is available to help students work through their options about staying or leaving the country.

Here at ITC, we’re offering two incredible short summer courses; the first to entertain and inspire, and the second to help students gain extra NCEA units. (more…)
