Our ITC Schools team provides high schools and high school students around New Zealand with the chance to both sample our fantastic learning environment, and to earn NCEA credits during fun, engaging, and educational short courses.
We ran a number of short courses over these school holidays, and we couldn’t be more pleased with how they went! (more…)Posted in In Schools, News | Tagged ITC for high schools, ITC in Schools, ITC short courses, School holidays, Travel Training | Leave a reply
ITC teams up with Education Industry Solutions to help Gateway students and high schools across New ZealandPosted on 11/03/2021 by Hayley Clark
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…)Posted in In Schools, News | Tagged Education Industry Solutions, Industry partnerships, ITC in Schools | Leave a reply
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.

At the start of 2018, New Zealand began an initiative that allows citizens and residents to study for one year for FREE. Yet there are still plenty of students who don’t know that their first year of study can be covered by the government!
Here’s a little more about the Fees Free initiative, who’s eligible, what you can study at ITC without paying a cent, and how to apply. (more…)Posted in In Schools, News, Study inspiration | Tagged ITC Award winning training, Study, Tourism training | Leave a reply
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 Hayley Clark
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.

We are excited to announce that our short courses are back under Alert Level 2.
As with campus reopenings, ensuring the safety of staff and students is still the utmost priority, says ITC Marketing Manager Mel Jenkins.
“We are beyond thrilled to be back offering short courses and working with high school students. We’re following level 2 guidelines and public health recommendations to ensure a safe learning environment,” says Mel.
These short courses are an excellent opportunity to provide students from all areas of school something meaningful, something over and above what they are doing in class. Most importantly, they help to instill confidence and see a positive future.In Schools, News, Study inspiration | Leave a reply
The International Travel College (ITC) may be headquartered in Auckland and Whangarei – but its courses are inspiring high school students all around the country.
Every month, the ITC Tourism Education Team travels to different areas of New Zealand to teach a variety of short courses.
In May, the ITC Flight Attending Short Course was delivered in three regions at the same time – Taranaki, Nelson, and Whangarei.
Over the course of two days, ITC tutors Ali, Mel, and Daniel all taught the same course in different locations.
“That’s what we call efficiency!” laughs Mel, the Tourism Education Team leader.In Schools, News, Staff News, Study inspiration |
The International Travel College of New Zealand’s passion for the tourism industry has inspired a cohort of secondary school students to pursue this exciting career choice.
Every year, the ITC short course team educates hundreds of 15, 16 and 17 year olds about New Zealand’s airline, travel and tourism industry, through interactive lessons, practical activities and industry visits.
The aim of these short courses is to show students what it’s really like to work in tourism, so they have plenty of information when it comes to making a decision about what to study when they leave school.
While some go on to pursue other passions, many short course students ‘catch the tourism bug’ and decide to study the subject at tertiary level. This is a great win for the tourism industry, which is currently in a high-growth phase in New Zealand and in need of skilled, motivated workers.In Schools, In the Community, News | Tagged ITC, tourism education, tourism in secondary schools, Tourism Industry | Leave a reply
On Tuesday 25th August a group of high school teachers, career advisors and STAR/Gateway coordinators became students for the day at the International Travel College of New Zealand (ITC). Every year ITC hosts several professional development (PD) days to educate secondary school professionals about the tourism industry.
“Our PD days provide that critical link between the high schools and industry,” says ITC Account Manager and PD day organiser Ceri Jenkins.
“Many of the high schools have no links with the industry and therefore have very little firsthand knowledge to pass onto the students. Once teachers have attended a PD day, they will walk away with 4 or 5 new contacts who are all keen to come in and talk to their students about what’s happening in the tourism industry.”In Schools | Tagged Gateway, ITC with secondary schools, professional development, STAR, Tourism Industry | Leave a reply
