Introducing ITC Upskill4Free

Posted on 26/05/2020 by

We will be offering modules or even up to one course completely FREE of any student fees to anyone who can demonstrate their travel and tourism employment has recently been terminated due to the crisis.

The past few months have been a whirlwind for everybody in the world. We’ve witnessed firsthand the immediate impact of COVID-19 on our industry.

We can see the real problems this pandemic is causing to tourism in New Zealand, with many companies making some huge staff cuts and even closing their doors.

The current situation: Where we are now

It’s hard to not feel helpless and very sad about the situation, and to worry what the future holds.

We certainly can’t predict how the industry will look, when it will turn around, and what the future will bring.

This sense of ‘no control’ has certainly been challenging for everyone. But, what we can control is how we react to it and what we do!

Here at ITC, we want to help.

In a time of crisis, we feel it’s our duty to help our industry.

ITC: Training the future tourism workforce

Posted on 14/04/2020 by

Now is a good time for people to train for tourism, so they are ready and qualified for when COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.

The COVID-19 pandemic has triggered unprecedented changes to tourism, both here in New Zealand and abroad.

There’s a lot about this crisis that’s difficult to predict – such as when a vaccine will be available, or when international borders will reopen.

During these uncertain times, ITC is looking to the future, for things we can do today to help strengthen the tourism industry for the years to come.

One of the things we can and are continuing to do is train the future tourism workforce.
