Qantas staff inspired and energised after ITC PD day

Posted on 20/08/2019 by

ITC recently hosted a Professional Development day for Qantas call centre staff.

One little-known fact about ITC is that we run professional development days with the likes of Explore Group NZ and Qantas.

Recently, staff from the Qantas call centre came into ITC for a fun day of training and team bonding.

The workshop was led by Daniel Maine, whose main role is short course tutor and marketing support. 

Daniel is known for his enthusiasm, energy, and awesome sense of humour – and this workshop certainly ticked all of those boxes.

ITC helps NZ dance group attend global dance competition

Posted on 18/06/2019 by

ITC recently sponsored Jaye’s Dance Group t-shirts for a global dance competition in Hawaii.

ITC has a long, proud history of supporting community organisations. From raising money for various charities to donating Christmas gifts to the Auckland City Mission, the College supports a wide variety of worthy organisations every year.

So, it’s no surprise that when ITC chief executive Claire Huxley came across a young dance group fundraising to attend a global competition in Hawaii, she wanted to help.

Meet the ITC graduate making headlines

Posted on 09/04/2019 by

ITC graduate Leo Seuula recently appeared on Seven Sharp and the New Zealand Herald.

Does the name Leo Seuula ring a bell? Even if his name doesn’t sound familiar, you might recognise his friendly face – because Leo has been making headlines left, right and centre!

The ITC graduate has been featured on Seven Sharp and the New Zealand Herald, described as “the man living the dream helping thrill seekers jump off Auckland’s Sky Tower”.

Leo works for AJ Hackett, helping tourists and adventure seekers walk around (or jump off!) the ring of the Sky Tower – some 192m above street level.

For most people, this would be a terrifying thing to do once – let alone for your day job – but Leo says he’s living his dream.

ITC the place-to-see for visiting Okinawa tourism officials

Posted on 29/01/2019 by

When officials from Okinawa are in New Zealand, they usually reach out to ITC tutor Takeyuki Morita to learn more about ITC and tourism in NZ.

Earlier this year, officials from Okinawa Council in Japan arrived in New Zealand for a four-day whirlwind business trip.

The officials came to New Zealand to research how to provide better tourism facilities in Okinawa. They reached out to ITC for advice and asked to be shown around the ITC Campus.

Unfortunately, ITC was closed for the summer holiday period, but one of our tutors, Takeyuki Moreta, was honoured to meet with the officials on ITC’s behalf.
