Be inspired: “Disney was just the beginning”

Posted on 01/07/2020 by

ITC graduate Michelle Coutts reflects on her experience living and working at Disney World.

When life throws you challenges and curveballs, some people see them as a setback – others see them as a learning opportunity and a chance to grow.

ITC graduate Michelle Coutts is definitely a glass-half-full person, who looks for the bright side in life.

Like many people across the world, Michelle’s life was changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

She was meant to spend another six months living and working at Disney World – one of her lifelong dreams – but instead she found herself back on a plane to New Zealand sooner than expected. 

Although Michelle would have loved to stay at Disney World for longer, she is so grateful for the experience and knows it was just the beginning of her exciting journey.

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.

Welcome back: ITC campuses to reopen under Alert Level 2

Posted on 13/05/2020 by

ITC is looking forward to welcoming back tourism students on Monday 18th May.

After seven weeks of studying and working from home, all of our campuses are set to reopen under Alert Level 2.

Students, tutors, and some support staff will be returning to college on Monday 18th May, unless they have been advised by their medical practitioner not to attend.

ITC Marketing Manager Mel Jenkins says while ITC is super excited to re-open its doors, she understands that some people may be feeling nervous about expanding their bubbles.

“We know everyone will both be excited and a little nervous to come back to college. The safety and wellbeing of our staff and students is still our utmost priority under Level 2,” she says.
