Many cruise ship holidaymakers were greeted by enthusiastic ITC students when they disembarked and boarded in Auckland over the busy cruise season.
Several ITC students worked as check-in agents for ID Tours and Renaissance Tours – meaning they were right on the customer service frontline to meet arriving and departing passengers.

But no country has snapped up more talented ITC tourism graduates than Australia. We recently caught up with some of the graduates who are pursuing their tourism careers across the Tasman. Here’s a glimpse into their Australian lives…News, Student success | Leave a reply
If you love helping people, you probably desire a meaningful career. Perhaps you’ve considered becoming a counsellor, teacher, social worker or nurse? Or maybe you dream of one day working for a charity?

According to a recent survey by the International Travel College of New Zealand (ITC), many respondents said the best thing about working in travel and tourism is helping others.
