Find out why ITC is so popular with Tahitian students!

Posted on 10/04/2024 by

ITC’s Daniel Maine is a true jet setter, and has recently visited Tahiti to speak to local students about studying in Aotearoa with us.

Daniel Maine began working with ITC back in 2016 as a short course tutor. In 2021, he was one of the first Kiwis to visit Rarotonga in the two-way travel bubble. And now, he’s taking a trip to Tahiti to chat with local students about the option of studying at ITC in New Zealand!

We had a quick catch up with Daniel about working with international students, why ITC is such a popular choice, and about his advice for any overseas students considering New Zealand for their studies.

ITC launches new tourism courses for current high school students!

Posted on 03/04/2024 by

Some students on our upcoming Experience will get to do the famous Auckland Harbour Bridge Climb!

High school students shouldn’t have to wait until they graduate to start studying the exciting world of travel, tourism, and aviation.

Yet if your high school doesn’t offer these courses, ITC can help. We’ve just launched three new courses available for high school students. These courses all offer credits at level 3, and can all be completed during normal school time at our Botany Campus.

Here’s a little more about each one!

Are your career goals similar to those of our current Whangarei students?

Posted on 20/03/2024 by

Our fabulous Whangarei Campus students.

Every year, we ask our students a few questions about why they chose us, and where they’d like to work one day.

We recently checked in with our Whangarei students to learn more about their motivations – or ultimately, why they are here studying with us now!

For anyone considering applying to study at ITC, do these life goals look anything like yours?

New Level 3 Certificate dates available now!

Posted on 07/02/2024 by

Our course dates are filling up, so we added a new one! Here’s some of the crew from Christmas last year.

The New Zealand Certificate in Tourism with a strand in Tourism and Travel Level 3 is one of our most popular course options.

It’s a fantastic entry-level course for anyone looking to take their first step into a career in travel and tourism, and it covers all the basic information you’ll need to work in a variety of roles, from hotel jobs to flight attending, travel agencies to airports.

This qualification is so popular, in fact, that the next start date on February 12 for the Auckland City Campus is already completely full. That’s why we’ve announced another intake for this course at the Auckland City Campus, which will start on March 11 (and is already starting to fill up!).
